Annaly Hotel, Longford
Like so many hotel across Ireland, the
Annaly ran dances initially to supplement income during the winter months when
tourists were scarce.
It ran dances for many years and was purchased by Jim Reynolds (brother of
Albert and half of the famous Reynolds brothers team).
In 2006, the hotel closed and has been for sale for many years. In 2016 there
were some interested parties but before his death Jim
went to the High Court to block the sale, but he owned millions to the banks. As
far as we know, the hotel still lies empty.
