Oh! What A Beautiful Morning!

Life’s A Beach Again For Greystones’ Dogs
September 14, 2017

ith the town’s reigning ice cream champs having decided to hang up their aprons, this year’s search for the perfect ’99 has been blown wide open. 

And given that Greystones likes its treats, the list of contenders to the crown has expanded to gelatos, frozen yogurts and whatever-you’re-having-yourself.

Up in Delgany, the Firehouse Bakery gang have hit the ground running with their new takeaway service, and they’ve been joined this past week by Mark at The Village Store in Killincarrig.

Add to that Joe Sweeney’s, Spendlove’s, Moretti’s, and Sweet Boutique, as well as the much-loved Mooch and the mighty Gino’s Gelato, and sure, as always, we chubby little Greystonians are spoilt for choice.

So, take your time. Sample each and every option. At least twice. And then vote for your favourite ice cream in the comments below. And you could win yourself 10 free 99s at the winning ice cream emporium.



And this year’s comp is over – we’ll have the winner on Tuesday evening. Big, big thanks to Ann and Paddy at Daly’s SuperValu too, for sponsoring this year’s Póg Mo Cone.
