Influenced by the political ideas of James Connolly, the Connolly Association is an independent, non-party political organisation that campaigns for Irish reunification and independence, defends the interests of the Irish in Britain, and seeks to win the British labour and trade union movement for disengagement from England’s oldest colony.

The Connolly Association has been campaigning in Britain for a united and independent Ireland for over 75 years. Almost 1,000,000 workers in Britain are affiliated to the Association through their trade union organisations.
