McDonald's is reopening six drive-thru restaurants in the Dublin area today.

Huge queues formed outside branches of McDonald's as the fast food giant reopened some of its United Kingdom drive-thrus.

A spokesman said: "With restaurant teams adjusting to new procedures to enable safe working and social distancing, things may take a little longer - and high demand is anticipated".

While McDonald's is working with the local authorities to ensure the reopening goes off without a hitch, Gardai still have the power to shut down drive-thrus should they deem queues to be too disruptive.

There will also be a capped spend in drive-thrus at €30 per vehicle and customers are being encouraged to pay by contactless payment methods wherever possible.

The takeaway closed all of its branches recently due to the coronavirus pandemic but have since started to slowly reopen across the UK.

· Social distancing has been introduced in the kitchens and service areas to help create a safe working environment for restaurant teams.

Perspex screens are installed at all windows and staff will be given protective equipment, the company said.

The restaurants at East Wall, Artane, Nutgrove, Tallaght, Kylemore Road and Malahide Road have all reopened - but they are drive-thru only and there is a limited menu in place.

"Learning from our initial phases, these tests, we will start to return to towns and cities across the United Kingdom and Ireland and thank you for your continued support as we work through this crisis".

Paul Pomroy, McDonald's CEO for the United Kingdom and Ireland, said in a statement: "When your local drive-thru does reopen, it will be different".
