All McDonald's Drive-Thrus to reopen in Ireland on June 4
All McDonald's Drive-Thrus in Ireland will reopen on June 4.
Following a successful trial of a small number of Drive-Thrus across the country, the fast food giant has announced that all of its Drive-Thru locations will be reopening from next week.
The Drive-Thrus will operate a limited menu that will not include milkshakes or twisty fries, but listen, they've got lots of other tasty treats.

A statement on the McDonald's Ireland website says that the company has sought the views of both customers and employees on phased reopening, as well as to conduct practice runs of how this might work.
In order to uphold appropriate social distancing, the restaurants will have fewer staff members working on each shift. The chain has also added protective Perspex screens into its kitchens and service areas.
The statements also outlined these further measures for reopening:
- The restaurants will be open for shorter hours than previously, from 11am to 10pm.
- They will be offering reduced menu options.
- The restaurants have been deep cleaned before re-opening.
- McDonald's staff have been issued with non medical grade PPE and hand sanitiser.
- Contactless thermometers will be used to check their temperatures on a daily basis.
- They will be required to wash their hands every 30 minutes.
