In just over ten weeks, Pope Francis will be touching down on Irish soil for what will be the first visit by a serving pontiff to these shores since Pope John Paul II arrived in 1979.

It's now been confirmed that his holiness will spend Saturday August 25 fulfilling a number of engagements in Dublin before jetting off to Knock the next morning and back to the capital that afternoon for a mass in the Phoenix Park.

The Pope will also be attending the World Meeting Of Families at Croke Park on Saturday night as well as Áras an Uachtaráin, Dublin Castle and as the Capuchin Day Centre throughout the day in the capital.

One thing's for sure, Leo Varadkar will have his funkiest pair of socks at the ready for the big visit.
