The next Socialist Party of Ireland was formed in Belfast and Dublin on 28th May 1949. It was associated with the Socialist Party of Great Britain (SPGB) and the World Socialist Movement, a Classical Marxist left movement. (Sometimes associated with impossibilism, though the SPGB reject the term).

The 1949 SPI later became the World Socialist Party.

Here's their manifesto:
