“Footloose and fancy free,
if I wanted to live in New York I’d live in New York,
if I wanted to live in Paris I’d live in Paris,
but Kilaloonty is where I roll out my blanket this past 16 years…”

An ode to Tuam by artist and musican Little John Nee, first performed at the launch of Creative Places Tuam, January 2020.

Sincere thanks to Tuam resident, artist and musician Little John Nee for recording a special version of his ode to Tuam for us to share with you.
