Church of Ireland Gazette Archive 1856 - 1923

The Protestant Church of Ireland’s newspaper, the Church of Ireland Gazette started life as a monthly magazine, named The Irish Ecclesiastical Gazette, became a weekly in 1880 and changed its name to The Church of Ireland Gazette in 1900 and is still in publication. 

The Church of Ireland's record repository, the Representative Church Body Library has the only complete hard-copy run of this newspaper and has digitised all editions for the 70-year period between 1856 and the end of 1923 and it’s available in their archive.

You don’t need to have Church of Ireland ancestors or even Irish ancestors to find the Gazette useful as the paper carried pieces about major national and international issues as well as appointments, retirements and general articles.
