It wouldn't be a normal day if something bizarrely Irish didn't happen. It has been revealed that tourists and Irish people are worshipping a car used by the Pope during his Irish visit.
RTÉ News captured locals and tourists visiting the Skoda Rapid in Bandon, Cork, the car's new home. As part of their pilgrimage, visitors touch and sit in the car as well as offering their prayers.

In the segment, local school girls discussed visiting the Vatican and one young woman talked about her love for Pope Francis, saying that he's one of the best Popes to understand young people.
The segment did not go unnoticed by social media users who referred to the pilgrimage as "embarrassing" and "madness".
Three Skoda cars were used to transport Pope Francis from engagements while he visited Ireland back in August, the first visit of a reigning pontiff since 1979.
One of the cars used by Pope Francis during his visit has been donated to suicide prevention charity Foyle Search and Rescue.
