The Society has published the Journal of the Old Tuam Society (JOTS) since 2004 in an effort to preserve in print, local history from Tuam and north Co. Galway, and to foster interest in the wider community. JOTS includes illustrated articles on history, archaeology, genealogy, and folk-culture. 

JOTS is published annually each November and is available in a wide range of newsagents and shops in Tuam and the wider north Galway area. The journal may also be consulted at Tuam Library, the National Library of Ireland, as well as in the library of NUI Galway.

New authors are especially welcome.
