The contemporary Socialist Party was formed in 1996.

It arose from the Trotskyist Militant tendency in Labour and the Labour and Trade Union Group in the North, which were associated with Militant in Britain and the Committee for a Workers International (CWI).

Its members are part of Solidarity, and it is affiliated with International Socialist Alternative (ISA) since the latter formed from divisions in the CWI.

Here's a thread on the various Socialist Parties in Ireland
