Scanned text reading: "After an existence of 11 months the Cork Branch of the ICO on 31 January, 1971 seceded from the Irish Communist Organisation (ICO) and reconstituted itself as the Cork Communist Organisation (CCO). The decision to secede from the ICO was unanimous and followed several weeks discussion by the members of the Cork Branch. The following pamphlet outlines the circumstances which led to the split. The ICO statement on the split, ‘Nationalist Disruption of the Communist Movement’ (Irish Communist, May 1971) is also commented on in Part One, as are their statements ; ‘Nationalist Slander’ (Communist Comment, 21 August, 1971) and ‘Nationalist Disruption 2’ (Irish Communist, October 1971) in Part Two."

The first Socialist Party of Ireland formed in the 1900s to continue James Connolly's Irish Socialist Republican Party (ISRP) after it collapsed. It briefly became the first Communist Party of Ireland in the 1920s, until the Comintern ordered its dissolution in favour of James Larkin's Irish Worker League.
