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 March issue:
International Working Women’s Day

The 8th of March each year has continued to grow in popu­larity around the world as a day on which to recog­nise and celebrate women in general. But this increase in popu­larity stems from a growing dis­connection from the radical social­ist roots of what was once widely known as Inter­national Working Women’s Day . . .

A bitter legacy can only produce bitter fruit
The scenes in Dublin city centre yesterday [Saturday 27 February] should come as no surprise to anyone, the CPI has said in a statement, but the answer does not lie in the politics of reaction, or with those who peddle hate and division.

Ní chruthaíonn oidhreacht nimhneach ach toradh nimhneach
Ní ábhar iontais do dhuine ar bith é a raibh le feiceáil i lár Bhaile Átha Cliath inné [Satharn 27 Feabhra], a deir an CPI i ráiteas, ach níl an freagra le fáil i bpolaitíocht an fhrith­ghníomhaithe, ná uathu siúd a scaipeann an ghráin agus deighilt.

Statement on CPI-CYM relations
The National Executive Committee of the CPI has issued a statement on the relations between the CPI and the Connolly Youth Movement.

Ráiteas faoin gcaidreamh idir an CPI agus an CYM
Tá Coiste Feidhmiúcháin Náisiúnta an CPI tar éis ráiteas a eisiúint faoin gcaidreamh idir an CPI agus Ógra Uí Chonaíle.


Mel Corry, who died on 13 January, was a lifelong trade unionist, a member of the Peadar O’Donnell Socialist Republican Forum, and a former member of the National Executive Committee of the CPI. A native of Lurgan and former textile worker, from 2008 he was a tutor with Trademark in Belfast, providing political education for trade unions. He was an inspirational teacher, who worked tirelessly in the service of his class.

Ba cheardchumannaí ar feadh a shaoil é Mel Corry, a fuair bás ar 13 Eanáir. Ba bhall é d’Fhóram Poblachtach Sóisialach Pheadair Uí Dhónaill agus iarbhall de Choiste Feidhmiúcháin Náisiúnta an CPI. B’as an Lorgain dó, agus chaith sé seal mar oibrí i dtionscal na dteicstílí. Ón mbliain 2008 ba theagascóir é le Trademark i mBéal Feirste, ag cur oideachas polaitiúil ar fáil do cheardchumainn. Ba mhúinteoir spreagúil é a d’oibrigh gan staonadh i seirbhís a aicme.

Countries must be allowed to produce generic covid vaccines
The CPI has called for countries to have the right to produce their own versions of covid-19 vaccine and so save lives without delay.

Ba chóir go mbeadh cead ag tíortha vacsaíní cineálacha covid a tháirgeadh
Iarrann an CPI go mbeadh cead ag tíortha a leaganacha féin den vacsaín covid-19 a tháirgeadh agus sa chaoi sin beatha a shábháil gan mhoill.


We’re back!


Táimid ar ais!
