Because mammy still knows

Ashwed

Don't think that mammy doesn't know what you get up while you're in Dublin.

Here are 7 places you can go to get your ash on today.

The Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough Street

It's not for amateurs.

Procath

The Carmelite Church, Whitefriar Street

It's rare enough that Ash Wednesday falls on Valentine's week – so now is your chance to visit the church that contains the relics of ol' St Val himself, AND get ashed up.

Efficient.

St Teresa's Church, Clarendon Street

Not only is it nice and central, located just off Grafton Street, but it has one of the most stunning interiors of any Catholic church in town.

Also conveniently close to lots of lovely lunch places.

St Teresa S Church

Church of the Holy Name, Beechwood, Ranelagh

Speaking of lovely lunch places, this is a stone's throw away from Ranelagh village – so you can ash and eat in quick succession.

If you're not fasting, that is.

Holyname

St Paul's, Arran Quay

For when you fancy keeping it northside, but don't fancy the fuss of the Pro Cathedral.

Archiseek

Mary Immaculate of Sinners, Rathmines

Because you'd always wondered what went on under that famous dome.

Bonus points for that amazing, super-Catholic name.

Rathmines

The Holy Redeemer, Bray Main Street

You know, if you fancy a bit of a trip.

Sorry Queen of Peace; the HR is where it's at.
