The League of Communist Republicans were a split from the Provisional IRA in the 1980s. This came on foot of the end of abstention by Sinn Féin in 1986 with a mass resignation of some IRA prisoners in the H-Blocks, amongst them were a smaller number who combined later that year as the League of Communist Republicans. They positioned themselves as supportive of the USSR and of the concept of a ‘vanguard party’.
