As my user boxes indicate, I am a Wikipedian from Northern Ireland. I am also unionist in terms of political ideology regarding my country. I have no connections with any political or religious organisations whatsoever and, contrary to personal attacks here, I am not a loyalist.

I come down on no particular side with respect to the British monarchy: while I believe it to be outmoded in the 21st century, I respect the history and tradition of it.

I created two WikiProjects, WikiProject Northern Ireland and WikiProject Belfast, both of which could do with your help.

For a list of some of the articles which I have created or heavily edited, click here.
