The Tuam Herald is one of the oldest newspapers in the Republic of Ireland, dating from May 1837 — the same year Queen Victoria came to the throne. The paper was involved in all the major causes of Irish history since then, from the Repeal Movement of Daniel O’Connell through the campaign to relieve the horrors of the Famine, to the Land War of the 1880s and on through the tumultuous early decades of the 20th century.

Reading through the files of those bygone years can be addictive, but in its day to day life the paper does what it always did: it looks to the next edition, and all the elements that come together to make The Tuam Herald a weekly must for many thousands of loyal readers.

It has always been a family business, controlled by three generations of the Kelly family from 1837 to 1930, and since then by three generations of the Burke family. John Burke was in turn foreman printer, manager and then editor after he joined the business in 1900. Now his grandson, David Burke, is editor and managing director.

The Tuam Herald of the 21st century brings a modern twist to the local newspaper business. Our team of talented writers, including Jim Carney, sports and farm editor, Tony Galvin, news editor and provocative columnist, Siobhán Holliman, Tom Gilmore, Jacqueline Hogge and our award-winning photographer Ray Ryan, and our many correspondents, serves up a weekly menu of news, sport, comment, arts and culture and local notes that nourishes community life in Tuam and North and East Galway.
