Tuam Herald Newspaper Records


The Tuam Herald is Galway's oldest newspaper and was founded in 1837. The title was sold to the Burke family in the 1930's and continues to be a family business to this day. The paper has always been close to the heart of Tuam and the surrounding area community. It together with the Tuam historical society played a significant role in preserving much of Tuam's ancient heritage. The Tuam Herlad archives are a wonderful resource for all those interested in family genealogical research with their detailed births, deaths (obituaries) and marriages. The provincial press was also far less censored by the British authorities than their national equivalent. As a result they give both the professional and amateur historian a unique perspective of Ireland's turbulent past as well as the local impact of major national and international events.
