The Irish Workers’ Union was formed circa 1960. It later became the Irish Communist Group (ICG), a percursor to the Irish Workers’ Group.

Two wings developed in the ICG including a Trotskist wing which became the IWG and a Maoist wing which became the Irish Communist Organisation. It produced two publications, the Irish Militant and An Solas/Workers’ Republic.
