From Nov.1977, the constitution of the Socialist Labour Party.
The SLP was led by Matt Merrigan and Noël Browne, formerly of Labour.
The Socialist Workers Movement, Irish Workers Group, and Movement for a Socialist Republic all joined as tendencies.
The SLP continued until 1982, when it was dissolved.
For a great overview of the party, they are covered in this episode of "The Others" podcast (from @firstname.lastname@example.org):
From the first issue of Socialist Republic in 1988, an interview with the IPLO.
Published by the Socialist Republican Collective, the political arm of the IPLO, which split from the INLA in 1986.
From 1977: "Church Launches New Attack on Women"
Socialist Republic on the establishment of "Cura" by the catholic church, and the campaign for abortion, contraception and reproductive rights.
Socialist Republic was the paper of the Movement for a Socialist Republic, and later of People's Democracy when the two organisations merged in 1978.
(Cura closed in 2018 when new regulations and accreditation requirements were brought in.)
The contemporary Socialist Party was formed in 1996.
It arose from the Militant tendency in Labour and the Labour and Trade Union Group in the North. Its members are part of Solidarity, and it's affiliated with International Socialist Alternative.
In 1971 SPI was set up, associated largely with former Official Sinn Féin members.
It identified strongly with the USSR, and was opposed to nationalism (forming part of the "Socialists Against Nationalism" campaign).
The first Socialist Party of Ireland formed in the 1900s to continue James Connolly's ISRP after it collapsed. It briefly became the first Communist Party of Ireland in the 1920s, until the Comintern ordered its dissolution in favour of James Larkin's Irish Worker League.
