Issue 481 of the new FORTNIGHT@50 will be published during April in both on-line and printed versions.

The main focus will be on the problems and side-effects of the Northern Ireland Protocol with contributions by Rory Montgomery, Edgar Morgenroth and Bernard Conlon.

There will be political coverage of the response from Loyalists by Aaron Edwards, the need for Unionist bridge-building by Jamie Pow and more general contributions on uncertainties and angst in the wider unionist community. In the arts pages Rosemary Jenkinson looks for a Protestant Heaney, along with prose and poetry from new writers.
