Saor Éire was a left Republican and communist organisation founded by members of the IRA in 1931. Notable among its founders were Peadar O’Donnell, Frank Ryan and George Gilmore.
It was described as “an organisation of workers and working farmers”, and brought together members of the Revolutionary Workers’ Groups (RWG), which was chiefly Dublin-based, and the Irish Working Farmers’ Congress (IWFC), which had been established by O’Donnell in 1930 and was associated with Krestintern, the Peasants International.
In October 1931 Saor Éire was banned (along with the RWG, IWFC, and other left Republican and communist groups) and collapsed after a short-lived existence.
