Flashback Friday: Mosney releases video that brings back nostalgic memories of Irish summers gone by
Theme-parks in far flung places and speeding rollercoasters might be the lures that capture modern children but a trip to Mosney was a simpler highlight of Irish summers past.
The much-loved holiday centre, which closed its gates in 2000, has released a video which will bring back many happy memories for those who spent many joyous summer days lapping it up in Co. Meath.
Thousands of Irish people boarded buses and trains from all over the country each summer bound for the ‘The Land of Make-Believe’ which could host over 2,800 campers and 4,000 visitors on any given day.
The holiday park was jam packed with opportunities to escape the long summer evenings spent playing tip-the-can too, offering slippery slides, sprouting pool mushrooms, splash pools, discos, theatres and even the chance to have a paddle around in a swan boat.
While the new roller coaster in Tayto Park might have been the talk of thrill seekers this summer, Mosney also offered visitors whirlwind opportunities with have a bang around with the bumper cars and to swirl in the waltzers.
Mosney Holiday Park closed after the millennium after more than 50 years of business.
