LOOKS LIKE WE’RE set for a cloudy enough weekend, but who can say no to ice cream?More specifically, who can say no to ice cream that only costs 1 cent?

All you need is an iPhone SE, 6 (or a later model) or an Apple Watch with Apple Pay set up.

Apple pay is a digital wallet, kind of like contactless payment, only on your mobile phone instead of on your bank card. It works on contactless terminals and can be fairly handy if you forget your physical wallet.

The feature has just been made available to AIB customers, so AIB are celebrating it by driving trucks to Dublin, Cork and Galway and giving everyone extremely cheap ice creams.
