, the town of Newport in County Mayo was founded by the leasing of land from
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
with a year-long programme of events to commemorate this special anniversary.
