The World Socialist Party (WSP) was the successor to the Socialist Party of Ireland (1940s) and linked to the World Socialist Movement, of which a fraternal organisation is the Socialist Party of Great Britain (SPGB). The WSP name was adopted in 1959.
Richard Montague contested the Northern Ireland Parliament elections for the party in 1962.
The party continued, with close links to the SPGB, at least until the late 1980s, when they published Socialist View magazine.
Socialist Standard, the journal of the SPGB, continues to list contacts in Newtownabbey and Cork, though their presence in Ireland appears to be nominal.
