The Socialist Party (Irish: Páirtí Sóisialach) is a socialist political party active in Ireland. It is a member of the Committee for a Workers’ International (CWI). […] In the late 1980s, a number of known members of the Militant tendency were expelled from Labour. Considering work in the party to no longer be viable, in 1989 the organisation took an “Open Turn” and established an independent party, adopting the name Militant Labour, also used by other sections of the Committee for a Workers’ International at the time. In 1996 the party merged fully with the Labour and Trade Union Group of Northern Ireland and changed its name to the Socialist Party.
