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 August issue:
“Government of the willing”—How long can it last?

Like a game of fantasy football, the establishment media and media pundits fill the pages and the air waves with speculation about how long the present coalition government may last. The coalition of Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and the Green Party, while only in office since 27 June, stumbles and staggers from one crisis to another. . . .Continue | Ar aghaidh

Solidarity with Cuban women
The National Women’s Com­mittee of the CPI, on behalf of the women members of the Com­mun­ist Party of Ireland and the Connolly Youth Move­ment, has written to the Commun­ist Party of Cuba and the Feder­ation of Cuban Women to express their solidarity with their sisters and comrades on the anni­versary of the 26 July Movement.

Dlúthpháirtíocht le mná Chúba
Tá Coiste Náisiúnta Ban an CPI, ar son bhaill ban Pháirtí Cumannach na hÉireann agus Ógra Uí Chonaíle, tar éis scríobh chuig Páirtí Cumannach Chúba agus Cónaidhm Ban Chúba chun a ndlúth­pháirtíocht lena ndeirfiúracha agus a gcomrádaithe a chur in iúl cothrom bhunú Ghluaiseacht 26 Iúil.


Solidarity with Nicaragua
On behalf of the CPI, the general secretary, Eugene McCartan, made a state­ment of solidarity on the occasion of the 41st anniversary of the Sandinista Revolution.



Dlúthpháirtíocht le Nicaragua
D’fhógair an t‑ardrunaí, Eugene McCartan, ar son an CPI, ráiteas dlúth­pháirtíochta mar chomóradh 41 bliain na Réabhlóide Sandinista.




Political statement
The formation of the three-party coalition govern­ment in Dublin, and their agree­ment on a “pro­gramme for govern­ment,” is a case of more of the same: a continu­ation of the same old polices that favour the rich and powerful, the CPI says in a statement.

Ráiteas polaitiúil
Is ionann bunú an chomh­rialtais trí-pháirtí i mBaile Átha Cliath, lena n-aontú le “clár rialtais,” agus an sean­scéal céanna arís: leanúint leis na sean-bheartais chéanna a thugann buntáiste do lucht rachmais agus cumhachta, deir an CPI i ráiteas.


The coronavirus pandemic and its impact on women
The CPI points out in a statement that the pandemic has resulted in an alarm­ing growth in psycho­logical, physical and sexual violence against women and girls.

Paindéim an choróinvíris agus a tionchar ar mhná
Cuireann ráiteas de chuid an CPI in iúl gur tharla fás scanrúil ar fhoréigean síceolaíoch, fisiceach agus gnéis in aghaidh mná agus cailíní mar thoradh ar an bpaindéim.


Edwina Stewart (1934–2020)
It is with deep regret that the Communist Party of Ireland announces the death of Edwina Stewart on Friday 29 May. A member of the National Execu­tive Com­mit­tee of the CPI in 1970 when the party was re­unified as an all-Ireland party, she was secretary of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Associ­ation from 1969 to 1977. A native of Belfast, she was a daughter of Sadie and Eddie Menzies, founder-members of the CPI in 1933.


Edwina Stewart (1934–2020)
Is cúis mhór bhróin do Pháirtí Cumannach na hÉireann a fhógairt go bhfuair Edwina Stewart bás Dé hAoine 29 Bealtaine. Ba bhall í de Choiste Feidhmiúcháin Náisiúnta an CPI sa bhliain 1970 nuair a ath­aontaíodh an páirtí mar pháirtí uile-Éireann. Bhí sí ina rúnaí ag Cumann Cearta Sibhialta Thuaisceart na hÉireann ón mbliain 1969 go dtí 1977. Ba as Béal Feirste di, iníon le Sadie agus Eddie Menzies, baill bhunaidh den CPI sa bhliain 1933.
