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:

Recovery for whom?

It is constantly repeated in the pro-boss media that the Irish economy is in recovery, and that this is in full swing throughout the European Union. One has to ask the serious question: A recovery for whom, and at what price? Continue | Ar aghaidh

Níl an stát Éireannach sásta an ghéar­chéim shláinte a réiteach, toisc go dtugann sé tús áite d’fhorbairt cóir phríobháideach leighis seachas do shláinte phoiblí, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.


Peter Sutherland: A lackey to the interests of imperialism
While the Irish establishment and its media eulogise Peter Sutherland as a figure the Irish people should all seek to emulate, the truth is lost, the CPI says in a statement.

Agus bunaíocht na hÉireann agus a meáin ag moladh Peter Sutherland go hard na spéire mar phearsa a bhféadfadh muintir na hÉireann go léir aithris a dhéanamh air, cailltear an fhírinne, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.
