COMMUNIST PARTY OF IRELAND / PÁIRTÍ CUMANNACH NA hÉIREANN
Partisan · Patriotic · Internationalist
Páirtíneach · Tírghrách · Idirnáisiúnach

The Communist Party of Ireland is an all-​Ireland Marxist party founded in 1933. Its aim is to win the sup­port of the majority of the Irish people for ending the capital­ist system and for build­ing social­ism—a social system in which the means of pro­duc­tion, distri­bu­tion and exchange are publicly owned and utilised for the benefit of the whole people. Páirtí Marxach uile-Éireann a bunaíodh sa bhliain 1933 is ea Páirtí Cumannach na hÉireann. Is é aidhm an pháirtí tacaíocht thromlach mhuintir na hÉireann a bhaint amach do dheireadh a chur leis an gcóras caipitleach agus do thógáil an tsóisialachais—córas sóisialta ina bhfuil na córacha táirgthe, dáileacháin agus malairte i seilbh an phobail agus ina n-úsáidtear iad ar mhaithe leis an bpobal iomlán.

 From the January issue:

Time for change!

Many people in Ireland yearn for a change of government, to one that would govern in the people’s interests and not renege on electoral promises once they enter Dáil Éireann. A noble dream it may be, but how real is it? Continue | Ar aghaidh
