The Ulster Third Way is the Northern Ireland branch of the Third Way and is organised by David Kerr, who had previously campaigned as an 'independent Unionist' (chairing the small North Belfast Independent Unionist Association) as well as for the British National Front.

As well as sharing the Third Way's aims U3W (as it is sometimes shortened to) is committed to securing independence for Northern Ireland from both the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. U3W tends to focus its attentions on trying to build up grass-roots support in Loyalist areas, emphasising Ulster-Scots and the Battle of the Boyne commemorations and has its main office in the Shankill area of Belfast. Despite this approach U3W remains a very minor force in Northern Irish politics. The group publishes a journal Ulster Nation, as well as irregular books and pamphlets about Ulster nationalism.

The party has largely confined its activities to the Belfast West constituency, campaigning only there in the 2001 general election (with Kerr winning 116 votes for a 0.3% share) and the 2003 assembly election (16 votes).[1] As well as in the west of Belfast U3W also offered candidates in north Belfast in the 2001 local elections.[2]
