Tyrone Constitution Newspaper Northern Ireland is a newspaper based in Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. It is published by the Alpha Newspaper Group. It describes itself as “The traditional newspaper for Omagh and district since 1844”.

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. Omagh, the market county town of Tyrone, is at the heart of the circulation area and where the newspaper’s editorial and advertising offices are sited. Although covering a largely rural area, there are significant business and commercial centres dotted throughout the sprawling circulation area. The Constitution has long been known for its in-depth coverage of community life and issues that concern the local populace.[citation needed] This was recognised when it received the Northern Ireland and UK Weekly Newspaper of the Year accolade in 1999.

At the heart of the community, the Constitution covers the full 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.
