“Walking Whid/ Walking Story” – a journey through Tuam with Oein DeBhardúin


Join Oein DeBhardúin, inaugural recipient of Creative Places Tuam’s Thinking on Tuam residency on this journey through the town, hearing about the stories, folklore, legends and history of Tuam, the Traveller Community and its relationship with Tuam. A transcript of the walking tour is available here. You can download the tour by clicking on the download button on the top right hand side of the picture.

This Walking Whid is inspired by the history and story of Tuam. We would like to credit Michael Waldron & Tuam Tidy Town’s Tuam Heritage and Nature Trail published in 2015 for text referenced in the Whid. Other resources used for this work were sourced from an assortment of Journal of Tuam Society (JOTS) publications, and Oein’s memories of stories told.

This Walking Story was first shared on Culture Night 2020. Route Map and Guidance and Full Transcript available.
