Looking Back...

...Moving Forward

In April 1720, the town of Newport in County Mayo was founded by the leasing of land from Thomas Meddlicott to Captain John Pratt.

A condition of the lease was that he would build twenty houses on what is now Meddlicott Street.

In 2020, Newport celebrates its tri-centenary and has planned a year-long programme of events to commemorate this special anniversary, which will commence after current Covid-19 restrictions
