The Workers' Party, formerly Official Sinn Féin and later Sinn Féin-The Worker's Party, is an Irish Republican Marxist-Leninist political party in Ireland. It was the smaller faction of the 1969/1970 Irish Republican Split over the issue of abstentionism, in which it followed an electoralist (in the Irish Republican sense) and explicitly Marxist-Leninist path. It maintains a minor presence today.[1][2]
