JOTS17 - Coming soon!

We are delighted to announce that the 17th edition of the Journal of the Old Tuam Society will be in shops on Friday 6th of November. In a challenging year, we were fortunate that so many authors sent articles in good time so we were able to get the journal completed in record time and so it hits the shelves earlier than usual.  Sadly we can't hold our usual launch event due to Covid restrictions but hopefully the early arrival of JOTS17 will compensate. Amazingly this edition has over 120 pages while JOTS1 had 64; not bad for a 17th edition. A 2 page article will appear in the Tuam Herald prior to the launch to look back over the past 16 editions and preview JOTS17. JOTS will be on sale in our usual stockists: Centra Dublin Rd; Quinn's, Supervalu, and Sharkey's Bishop St; Joyce's Supermarket Abbey Trinity Road; Maxol Service Station, Church View from Saturday morning. They can also be purchased at Ray O'Brien's Newsagent, William St Galway. For international or
