UK former constituency infobox
Name = Fermanagh and Tyrone
Type = County
Year = 1922
Abolition = 1950

Fermanagh and Tyrone was a Parliamentary Constituency in the British House of Commons.

Boundaries

The constituency was formed from the constituencies of Fermanagh North, Fermanagh South, Tyrone North-East, Tyrone North-West and Tyrone South. It covered County Fermanagh and County Tyrone in Northern Ireland, within which it was the only constituency to regularly elect Nationalist MPs. It was abolished in 1950. Much of the constituency then became Fermanagh and South Tyrone, the remainder part of Mid Ulster.

Members of Parliament

Nationalist MPs were elected in every general election and by-election held in the constituency, except for the 1924 UK general election, when no Nationalist stood and two Ulster Unionists defeated two Sinn Féin candidates.
