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 December issue:
Debt crisis grows

Global debt is now becoming a major factor in the instability of the system of capitalism . . . The United States alone is responsible for 30 per cent of the outstanding public debt. Trump’s policies in the last two years have accelerated the growth in US government debt. The US Treasury is followed by the Japanese and Chinese debt agencies and the biggest euro-zone economies.  Continue | Ar aghaidh

Celebrating war shows the limits of Irish nationalism
Those forces within Irish nationalism that sided with the British state for their own material interests are still acting in those interests as they align themselves with the needs of imperialism, the CPI says in a statement.

Taispeánann ceiliúradh cogaí teorainneacha an náisiúnachais Éireannaigh
Tá na fórsaí sin laistigh den náisiúnachas Éireannach a thaobhaigh leis an stát Briotanach ar mhaithe lena leas saolta féin ag gníomhú fós ar mhaithe leis an leas céanna agus iad á n‑ailíniú féin le riachtanais an impiriúlachais, deir an CPI i ráiteas.


The Connolly-Walker debate
In October 2018 a new edition of the debate between James Connolly and William Walker, contain­ing all the articles published originally in 1911, was launched by Connolly Books, Dublin. This is a crucial docu­ment in its presenta­tion of Connolly’s under­stand­ing of the inextricable con­nec­tion between national indepen­dence and the struggle for social­ism. It is avail­able from Connolly Books, price €8 (£7).



An díospóireacht idir Ó Conaíle agus Walker
I mí Dheireadh Fómhair 2018 sheol Connolly Books, Baile Átha Cliath, eagrán nua den díospóireacht idir Séamas Ó Conaíle agus William Walker, a chuimsíonn na hailt go léir a foilsíodh den chéad uair sa bhliain 1911. Foilseachán rí­thábhachtach is ea seo sa chaoi a léiríonn sé tuiscint an Chonaíligh ar an nasc do­shéanta idir an neamh­spleáchas náisiúnta agus an troid ar son an tsóisialachais. Tá sé le fáil ó Connolly Books ar €8 (£7).


State budget protects the interests of the Irish ruling class
The Irish ruling class—itself dependent on American, British and Euro­pean capital—will be satis­fied with the state’s efforts to guaran­tee the “confi­dence” and “stability” that is the bedrock of their rising profits and vast fortunes, the CPI says in a statement.
Tugann cáinaisnéis an stáit cosaint d’aicme ceannasach na hÉireann
Beidh aicme cheannasach na hÉireann—a bhraitheann féin ar chaipiteal Meiriceánach, Briotanach agus Eorpach—lánsásta le hiarrachtaí an stáit ar an “muinín” agus an “seasmhacht,” ar bun­chloch iad dár mbrabús méadaitheach agus a saibhreas ollmhór, a chinntiú, deir an CPI i ráiteas.

Tommy McKearney, Laura Duggan, Anthony Coughlan, Kevin McCorry

The meeting was addressed by Tommy McKearney (Peadar O’Donnell Socialist Republican Forum), Anthony Coughlan (who was present at the founding meetings on behalf of the Wolfe Tone Society), and Kevin McCorry (organiser, NICRA).

Dé Sathairn 6 Deireadh Fómhair eagraíodh cruinniú poiblí chun comóradh a dhéanamh ar chaoga bliain ó bhunú Chumann Cearta Sibhialta Thuaisceart na hÉireann. Labhair Tommy McKearney (Fóram Poblachtach Sóisialach Pheadair Uí Dhónaill), Anthony Coughlan (a bhí i láthair ag na cruinnithe bunaidh ar son Chumann Wolfe Tone) agus Kevin McCorry (eagraí, NICRA) ag an gcruinniú.
