One group which combines solidarity with the Palestinian struggle in
general with specific solidarity with the PFLP is the Irish revolutionary
current éirígí.

To me, this - rather than a cluster of Potemkin Village 'internationals' -
is real internationalism.

Message from PFLP to the 2014 eirigi ard fheis (national conference):

The party had invited Leila Khaled to Ireland but she was denied entry; the
PFLP were, however, able to send another representative:
