Magpies confirm Irish training camp

Written by Dan King

Newcastle United will return to Carton House in Ireland for a week-long training camp this month.

The Magpies prepared for last season's Sky Bet Championship title-winning campaign at the resort in County Kildare.

They also visited before the 2009/10 season, which also ended with United lifting the Championship trophy.

Real Madrid, AC Milan and the British & Irish Lions have all used the facilities in recent years and Rafa BenĂ­tez's side will head there again this summer.

And, with its impressive training pitches allied with convenient gym facilities and on-site team-building activities, the Newcastle manager believes Carton House is the ideal place to step up United's pre-season after the players reported back to the training ground last week.

The team will arrive on Sunday, and while there will be no friendly fixture in Ireland - last year United beat Bohemian 6-0 in a warm-up match - the Magpies will use the trip to prepare for their games against Preston North End and Bradford City.

And we'll bring you behind-the-scenes coverage, interviews and more on nufc.co.uk, NUFC TV and our social media channels.
