One of the most exciting developments in Ireland over the past year has
been the emergence of a new socialist-republican current, called eirigi.
eirigi was founded by people who left Sinn Fein over disagreement about
the Provo leadership's abandonment of socialism and republicanism.

The group seems to have begun with just half a dozen young ex-Sinners in
Dublin getting together a year ago and in 12 months expanding nationally
and establishing themselves as a new party.

They have one of the most imaginative left websites I have come across.
