The National Labour Party (NLP) was formed in 1944 after a split in Labour and the trade union movement in Dublin amid concern from the right of the party about communist members and the nomination of James Larkin as an election candidate. Five of the parties eight TDs left to form the NLP, led by William X. O’Brien.
The NLP formed part of the first Inter-Party Government, in which Labour also participated. Co-operating in government, and with the retirement of O’Brien and death of Larkin, the two parties re-merged in 1950.
