The Cathedral Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Tuam or ‘Tuam Cathedral’ as it is otherwise known, is a Roman Catholic cathedral. 

Under English Reformation and with the main diocesan cathedral being St. Mary’s, for centuries Roman Catholic clergy were dispossessed of any catholic structures used, before penal laws were later relaxed and the Roman Catholic started to gain a very strong following. 

As a result the Tuam Cathedral was constructed in 1827. The cathedral boasts unusual Gothic style features throughout its architecture.
