The Connolly Youth Movement (CYM) is an all-Ireland Marxist-Leninist youth organisation, formed in 1963.

It affiliated with the Communist Party of Ireland (CPI) when it was re-formed in 1970 with the merging of the Irish Workers Party and Communist Party of Northern Ireland (CPNI), with the CPNI youth wing also joining the CYM.

It was dissolved in the early 1990s, but was re-formed by the CPI in 2005.

In 2021 it announced it had disaffiliated from the CPI.
