Éirígí

Éirígí ( or , stylised as éirígí) is a socialist republican political party in Ireland, registered since 2010 to contest local elections only. The party name, "éirígí", means "arise" in the second person plural imperative in Irish, a reference to a famous speech by trade union leader James Larkin.

It gained its first local councillors in 2009, when two former Sinn Féin councillors, Dungannon councillor Barry Monteith and Dublin City Councillor Louise Minihan, joined the organisation. Former Wexford county councillor for Sinn Féin and New Ross town councillor John Dwyer also joined éirígí. It failed to win any seats in the 2014 local elections, leaving it without elected representation.

In early 2014 one of its members, Ursula Shannon, was convicted and sentenced to six years imprisonment after being charged under anti-terrorism legislation for possessing weapons and ammunition.
