This whopper of a 99 - called 'The Big Boy' - is on sale in Co Meath

Don’t even think of the brain freeze.

Whoop @capturebylucy finally managed to get on the beach today! Cheers! Hope you got some sunshine too! #99icecream

WITH THE COST of a simple 99 rising every year, some noble retailers are ensuring that you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Over the weekend, blogger and PhD candidate Sinéad Burke nipped in to Ross Filling Station in Co Meath for a bit of ice cream. Just a bit:

This sculptural work of art is €2.30 (bargain, TBH) and it has a name: The Big Boy. How did she feel after it?

Violently unwell.

An unsurprising result. Still, it was important, culturally, that the Big Boy was sampled. Thank you for your bravery, Sinéad.

This is yet more evidence that Meath is the 99 Capital of Ireland – back in 2015, this monster was bought in Clonard:

Is ice cream experimentation in Meath going too far? A Primetime investigation, please.
