The present-day CPI was founded in 1933 by the Revolutionary Workers’ Groups. In 1941 the part of the party in the south of Ireland suspended its activities, while in the north it continued to operate under the name Communist Party of Northern Ireland. The party was re-established in the South in 1948 under the name Irish Workers’ League, which changed its name in 1962 to Irish Workers’ Party. The two sections reunited as the Communist Party of Ireland in 1970.Wikipedia
