Old An Óige Youth Hostel for men at Robinstown, Co Meath
The Irish Youth Hostel Association, An Óige, has just celebrated its 75th anniversary. One of the Association's earlier hostels was for men only, in this little cottage on the east side of the Robinstown - Trim road. It opened in 1938 and closed over winter 1942-43, when the lease was terminated. Usage had been disappointing. The equivalent women's hostel was a few hundred yards to the south, in square N8360. It is a very pleasant surprise to find both premises still standing - just!
