Major hotel and golf club is planned for Oldbridge
OLDBRIDGE House and grounds, on the site of the Battle of the Boyne, could be developed into a multi-million pound hotel and leisure facility.
If it gets the backing, the development is expected to give a much needed boost to tourism in Meath and Louth.
The former Coddington estate has been purchased from its owner, pig farmer, Jack Marry, by a consortium of national and international businessmen named Oldbridge Estate Ltd.
The project got backing from Michael Bell TD.
The Oldbridge estate comprises 550 acres and features many stone buildings which will be preserved and converted into fishing and golfing lodges.
The plan includes a hotel and two 18-hole golf courses and an equestian centre.
