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.
