Links between Tuam and Straubing were established through the contacts of Willi Kiefel, a native from the Straubing area living in Tuam. The result of these activities was a visit in 1984 by a group of pupils from the “Ursulinen Gymnasium” with their principal, Sr. Angela, to Tuam.
On August 14,1991, the Chairman of the Tuam Town Commissioners, Miko Kelly, signed the partnership document in Straubing and on 6 September, 1991 the Mayor of Straubing, Herr Perlak, countersigned this document in Tuam’s St. Mary’s Cathedral.
Since 1991, pupil exchange has continued to remain the foundation of this partnership with ever increasing numbers. Holy Rosary College, Mountbellew joined in the student exchange a number of years ago. 34 students from Straubing, accompanied by two teachers continue to visit Tuam annually in October.  The students have been hosted by families in Tuam and Mountbellew.
The Tuam - Straubing twinning partnership was established in 1984.

Die Tuam - Straubing Städtepartnerschaft wurde 1984 gegründet.
