First Irish Credit Card and PIN transaction

What I experienced in a supermarket in Gothenburg 4 years ago has finally came to Ireland.
Siliconrepublic reports on the fact that Irish card payment processing company EuroConex claims to have made history by processing the very first non-test chip and PIN transaction in Ireland at the Nas Na Riogh Bookshop in Naas.
The transaction is understood to have been made on a EuroConex-owned Hypercom terminal on 28 June. Following that, the first concentrated roll-out of chip and PIN technology in Ireland took place last Tuesday (13 July) in the towns of Naas and Newbridge.
