List of Ulster-related topics


List of Ulster-related topics

The territorial extent covered by the term Ulster may vary, reflecting the prevalent deep political and cultural divisions.

Political and paramilitary organizations, parties and movements having "Ulster" as part of their name are almost invariably on the Unionist side; military and police units having such names are often accused of a pro-Unionist bias. That is, however, not necessarily the case with names in other spheres including "Ulster". For example, Ulster sports associations and teams often form part of an all-Ireland structure and thus, while not overtly political, are favorably regarded by Irish Nationalists.
