12th of June 1982, the Socialist Labour Party (SLP) voted to dissolve.

Founded in 1977, the SLP sought to build a party of the Left, bringing together former Labour members and Left groups, which joined as tendencies — the Socialist Workers’ Movement (SWM), League for a Workers’ Republic, Irish Workers Group, and Movement for a Socialist Republic; though all left the SLP within a few years (with the SWM tendency leaving last in 1980).

in 1949, the Socialist Party of Ireland was founded:

On May 28th, 1949, a number of workers, representing Socialist Groups in Dublin and Belfast, met in Belfast and decided that the Groups should coalesce and form the Socialist Party of Ireland. That decision was subsequently ratified by the members of the Dublin and Belfast Groups; and so was born the first political party in Ireland to publicly and unequivocally declare its object to be the establishment of Socialism.

This Socialist Party of Ireland was associated with the SPGB and later became the World Socialist Party.

🎙️ New episode of the Irish Left Archive Podcast:

We discuss the new volume, Spirit of Revolution: Ireland from below, 1917–1923, with John Cunningham and Terry Dunne.

This edited volume looks at regional and local case studies during the revolutionary period, highlighting the widespread radicalism – beyond the national independence movement – that flourished around Ireland at the time in land and housing action, labour mobilisation and trade unionism.
