The small town of Tuam in Ireland, is some times called the fastest town in Ireland as a joke. If you pronounce it the right way it sounds like a car driving by fast. The town has two big Cathedrals, but only around six thousand people.
Here are some previous posts from my visits to friends in Tuam:
Tuam is on the West coast of Ireland, in County Galway and not to far from the City of Galway. It has many cosy pubs that is very nice to take a round to visit. Sadly there are a few shops and pubs that are closing down, but there is still quite a lot of people visiting the charming town center. I hope they can reverse the trend of shops having to close down and some newcomers seems to be doing OK.
The weather on the West coast was not as nice as the weather I got in the South of the country, but this time the rain started in the morning in Dun Laohaire, and there was not a sudden start of the rain as the car crossed the river Shannon to the west.
This time around we got a lot of our friends out for a pub round, so we got to meet up and catch up with a lot of people and not just the ones that we called around to for a cup of tea or the ones that called in to us. Let’s just say that visiting Ireland you need to be prepared for a large intake of tea.
