It was founded in June 1921 as a successor to the Dublin Gazette (itself founded in 1706), as it became increasingly clear that Ireland would be divided and that the North would therefore need its own separate Official Newspaper of Record. (The Dublin Gazette became the Iris Oifigiúil in January 1922.)
It’s published by TSO on behalf of Her Majesty’s Stationery Office. It’s one of a series of Gazettes for the whole United Kingdom; The Edinburgh Gazette and The London Gazette perform the same function for Scotland and England & Wales respectively.
It moved offices across central Belfast from Arthur Street to Linfield Road in August 2011.
