The short-lived Irish Socialist Republican Party although now largely forgotten, represents a profound moment in the history of socialism and republicanism.

The short-lived Irish Socialist Republican Party (1896-1904), although now largely forgotten, represents a profound moment in the history of socialism and republicanism and was the ideological springhead for a political tradition that has impacted radical Irish politics ever since. So argues Irish journalist Lynch in his history of the organization.

He believes that its political program represented a fundamental break with what had come before in that it was anti-imperialist and united the call for an independent Ireland with a call for workers' control of industry and agriculture.

In placing the party's ideological development and political activities in historical context, Lynch also sheds light on an important aspect of the life of its more famous founder, the "presiding genius of the whole business," James Connolly.
