Currans' Service Station has gone viral for having the largest 99 cones in Ireland.
99 season is upon us and while they no longer cost 99c (sigh) they're no less delicious than they ever were. Meath service station Currans' in Ross Cross has gone viral for creating the largest 99 in Ireland, with some creations sitting as tall as 12 inches. And if you need pictures for scale, just look below (or imagine a foot long Subway). This 99 cone is aptly called "The Big Boy."
A service station in Co Meath reckons it is selling Ireland’s biggest 99 ice cream. Staff at the shop in Ross Cross say they can sell up to 800 ‘Big Boy’ cones a day. But what’s the secret to pulling - and eating - one? 🍦😋🍦 pic.twitter.com/GE26dRwt2W

Currans sells thousands of these 99 cones a week. They sell approximately 200-300 on week days, and up to 500 on Saturdays and Sundays. According to RTÉ News, staff at the garage say they have the capacity to sell as many as 800 Big Boys in a day (so they hopefully won't have run out if you decide to make the pilgrimage there).
Thomas Crosse, aka Crossy, took to Instagram to share his personal experience obtaining one of these mammoth cones. One Big Boy costs €4, or just €3.60 if you're not getting a flake, which is a bargain considering you probably get about four ice-creams in one with this (almost like they are 99c again).
Currans' Service Station is five minutes outside of Dunshaughlan in Ross Cross, Meath.
