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 February issue:
There are no shortcuts

Elections come and go; but there are no shortcuts for what our class needs to secure. Over the course of the general election campaign it was clear that a general feeling of bewilderment and boredom, in equal measure, was the reaction of many working families to the talking heads pontificating on television and radio in trying to interpret or reinterpret what a political party said or meant to say . . .

News Nuacht

The changing face of Ireland and growing class-consciousness
The results of the general elec­tion for the 33rd Dáil have con­firmed the grow­ing frustra­tions within the work­ing class and the need for alterna­tive social and econ­omic policies, the CPI has said in a statement.

Na hathruithe atá ag teacht ar Éirinn agus tuiscint aicme ag dul i méid
Dearbhaíonn toradh an oll­toghchán don 33ú Dáil an frustrachas atá ag méadú i measc an lucht oibre agus an gá atá le rogha beartais shóisialta agus eacnamaíoch, deir an CPI i ráiteas.


Brexit: Only the beginning, not the end
The decision of the people of Britain to leave the European Union on the 31st of January has for the last three years thrown the British and Irish establishments into disarray, the CPI says in a statement.

Brexit: Níl ann ach an tosú, seachas an críoch
Tá cinneadh phobal na Breataine ar an Aontas Eorpach a fhágáil ar 31 Eanáir tar éis bunaíocht na Breataine agus na hÉireann a chur trí chéile ar feadh na dtrí bliana deireanacha, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.


A victory for the people’s opposition to imperialism
The decision of the Fine Gael govern­ment to cancel the planned commemor­ation of the DMP and RIC, includ­ing the Black and Tans and Auxiliaries, was a result of the wide­spread anger felt by the majority of our people, the CPI says in a statement.

Bua ag seasamh an phobail in aghaidh an impiriúlachais
An fhearg fhorleathan a mhothaigh formhór ár bpobail ba chúis le cinneadh rialtas Fhine Gael comóradh an DMP agus an RIC, na Dúchrónaigh agus na Auxiliaries san áireamh, a chur ar ceal, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.


The blood of thousands is on their hands
The CPI has condemned the murder by the US govern­ment of the Iranian general Qasem Suleimani.

Tá fuil na mílte duine ar a gcuid lámh
Tá an CPI tar éis dúnmharú Qasem Suleimani, ginearál de chuid na hIaráine, ag rialtas na Stát Aontaithe a cháineadh.


Political statement
The National Executive Committee of the CPI issued a political statement after its regular meeting in December.

Ráiteas polaitiúil
D’eisigh Coiste Feidhmiúcháin Náisiúnta an CPI ráiteas polaitiúil tar éis a chruinniú rialta i mí na Nollag.
