About Us

éirígí is an Irish revolutionary political party which was established in 2006 by a group of political activists who believed that a new organisation was needed to fight for the rights of working people and to rebuild opposition to the British occupation of the Six Counties.

Unlike many other political parties éirígí makes decisions on major issues of strategy and policy on the basis of ‘one member, one vote’. Our party constitution and policy documents have all been adopted following exhaustive internal debate and discussion where everyone got the chance to have their voice heard. You can read them here.

éirígí’s national executive is called An Ciorcal Náisiúnta. It is responsible for running the party on a day-to-day basis in between Ard Fheiseanna (annual conferences). An Ciorcal Náisiúnta is elected by the party membership on a ‘one member, one vote’ basis. You can read more about An Ciorcal Náisiúnta here.
