Elections to the United Kingdom Parliament held in Northern Ireland
General Election of Thursday 1 May 1997

With an improving economy but still trailing in the polls, Prime Minister John Major called an election for May Day.

There were significant changes to all of the constituencies in Northern Ireland except Antrim North, and an additional seat of Tyrone West was created.

Changes since 1992
A by election was held on 15 June 1995 in Down North where the constituency continued its independent unionist streak, electing UK Unionist Robert McCartney following the death of Ulster Popular Unionist Jim Kilfedder.
