Militant was established in 1972 as a tendency within the Irish Labour Party, as Militant in the UK had done in the British Labour Party. Organising to bring the Labour Party to socialism the Tendency was overtly Trotskyist. Expelled in the late 1980s from the ILP they merged with the Labour and Trade Union Group in Northern Ireland as the Socialist Party.
