Journalist Susan McKay discusses her new book, Northern Protestants – On Shifting Ground. McKay shares that in 2021 unionists in Ireland attempted to celebrate the centenary of Northern Ireland and in 2022 they collapsed its government. Political unionism is hardening into a nostalgia for the sectarian state that the Good Friday Agreement dismantled, but McKay’s book explores the surprising diversity of thought among people from a Protestant background who are impatient with narrowness, open to new ideas and welcoming of the potential for political change.
