|The Tyrone Constitution was established in 1844, the oldest newspaper |
in the county, and one of the longest-running in Northern Ireland. It circulates in a wide area of Tyrone, stretching from the Clogher
Valley in the South to the Sperrin Mountains in the North and also
penetrates into North Fermanagh.

The Constitution has long been known for its in-depth coverage of
community life and issues that concern the local populace. This was

spectrum of local life, right across the communities. With its finger
on the pulse of developments in local government, health, education,
policing, agriculture, arts and culture, and sport, the newspaper
also prides itself on its contribution from village and church
correspondents, right across its area.
