    Following a request from Push, I have locked this thread in the hope that more people will see it.

    Also, it seems good timing that I have recently been sent a Mosney Staff Handbook from 1962 & memories of Mosney in the 1950's & 60's by Jane Leslie who was a Redcoat at Mosney in the early 1960's. When I reply to her e-mail I will alert her to this thread.

    This may seem like a bit of a random question, but can anyone tell me if Mosney is an actual suburb / town, or is it just a name invented to describe the actual camp itself?

    Also does anyone know the address of the camp?

    I am under the impression that it was the name of the 'area' before Butlin's got it. There is a church there, and that house which is mentioned in the latest additions to the site.
    I am sure that if it is addressed to Mosney Camp, Mosney, Ireland, it would get there. We just need to add in the county.

    Hi Skegred Andy,
    Funny, I found that video here:
    http://www.bebo.com/Profile.jsp?MemberId=4412225403
    while I was searching out information on Mosney. But look closely at that link... Scroll down and read the stuff on the left (history of Mosney). It is word for word from our very own Mosney page:
    http://www.butlinsmemories.com/mosney/index.htm
    So, who set up that page? Someone from here?
    Intrigued,
    Dee.
    PS. Glad you liked the video. Yes, Mosney I'm sure was an amazing camp, and hopefully will be again one day if Pushbutton and I have got anything to do with it!

    The relevant addresses for enquiring about heritage sites are as follows:
    The Heritage Council,
    Áras na hOidreachta,
    Church Lane,
    Kilkenny,
    Ireland
    Tel: 00 353 56 7770777

    Loreta Guinan,
    Heritage Officer,
    Meath County Council,
    County Hall,
    Navan,
    Co. Meath,
    Ireland.
    e-mail lguinan@meathcoco.ie
    Tel: 00353 46 9097405

    The address of the camp is just Mosney, Co. Meath, Ireland.

    The camp is still owned by Phelim McCluskey who bought it from Butlins in 1980 and ran it for twenty years as Mosney Holiday Centre. There was a story told, I can't vouch for its truth, that when Billy Butlin built the camp in 1948 including the large Catholic church, he bought some religious pictures to put on the walls of the church. Phelim McCluskey sold the pictures when he took over Mosney and was supposed to have got enough money for them to pay for the purchase of the camp.

    Good luck to anyone who wants to take on the job of getting Mosney preserved. I will be glad to give my support.
