The Ulster Gazette, also known as the Ulster Gazette and Armagh Standard is a newspaper based in Armagh City, Northern Ireland, UK. It is published by the Alpha Newspaper Group and has the largest readership in Armagh City and District since 1844.
The Gazette circulates throughout the entire City and District of Armagh, Portadown and other parts of the Borough of Craigavon and the Districts of Dungannon and Newry City, with penetration into Co. Monaghan.
- Circulation is not verified by ABC as the Alpha Newspaper Group believe it to be too expensive, instead their newspapers are 'independently' audited and their readership figures are calculated at a ratio of 4/1 instead of the industry standard of 3/1. Circulation, as of 2012, average over 6,000 copies sold a week.
The area is one of the main administrative centres in Northern Ireland including the Area Headquarters of both the Education and Health Boards and the new North/South Councils. It is a well-known location for tourism and is the Ecclesiastical Capital of All-Ireland.
In addition to administration and tourism, agriculture is one of the main providers of employment and the Armagh area is especially known as the ‘Garden of Ulster’, where there is a predominance of vegetable and fruit production.
