Unity is a weekly paper published by the Communist Party of Ireland (CPI) in Belfast.

Initially produced by the Communist Party of Northern Ireland (CPNI) between 1943 and 1946. It was re-established by the CPNI in the 1960s, and continued as a CPI publication when the CPNI and Irish Workers’ Party refounded the CPI in 1970.

Following divisions in the CPI in 2021, Unity continued to be published in Belfast by members who subsequently ‘refounded’ as the Irish Communist Party.

    Unity is now the official organ of the Irish Communist Party, the founding Congress of which was held in the summer of 2022.

      Thanks Colin. Do you know is Unity available online anywhere now, or just in print?

      I had been aware of the Irish Communist Party congress, but having no direct connection to those involved, I didn't want to add it to our site based on second-hand information, so was waiting until I found a statement or information from the party itself.
