Ulster loyalism is a part of Ulster unionism which is related with working class Ulster Protestants in Northern Ireland.

Like most unionists, loyalists support the British monarchy, support Northern Ireland being within the United Kingdom, and oppose a united Ireland.

Ulster loyalism has been described as a kind of ethnic nationalism.[1][2]
