  Physical force Irish republicanism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Physical force Irish republicanism is a term used by historians in Ireland to describe the recurring appearance of non-parliamentary violent insurrection in Ireland between 1798 and the present.
The tensions between the democratic features of the new Irish Republic proclaimed by the First Dáil, the Army of the Republic (The Irish Republican Army), and the secretive Irish Republican Brotherhood, reached a head in 1921 with the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty which created an independent Irish dominion known as the Irish Free State.
The Irish Republican Army (1922-1969) and its political wing, Sinn Féin went through periodic splits, most dramatically in 1969 when two IRAs emerged, the Official IRA and the Provisional IRA, along with two Sinn Féins; Sinn Féin - Gardiner Place or Official Sinn Féin and Sinn Féin - Kevin St or Provisional Sinn Féin.

 [Marxism] Irish Republicanism and Postmodern Pluralism Article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
In particular, long-term tensions within republican ideology itself, between a left orientated, radical and universalist agenda and that of an ethnically-centred, particularist frame of thinking are being tilted in favour of the latter by a peace process predicated on a view of society best defined as both pluralist and postmodern.
In other words, the politics of modern Irish republicanism were defined by the very particular circumstances facing working class catholics living in a state that had enmeshed sectarianised social relations into its structures and policies, and that was willing and able to employ its coercive capacity to maintain the same.
The rhetoric and political projects of Irish republicans can often seem to have little enough in common from one historical period to the next, though certain broad continuities of thought and principle are also evident; that of national self-determination being the most obvious.

The central tenets of Irish republicanism can be described as independence, democracy, and socialism - these are the same objectives the republican movement fought for not only over the last thirty odd years but throughout the last two centuries.
From the period around the late 1970s and prior to the hunger strikes of 1980/1981 the republican movement realised that military pressure on its own was incapable of moving the Brits far enough to satisfy the initial demand of Irish republicanism - British withdrawal from the occupied north.
This strategy too failed to deliver the core aims of republicanism and by the 1990s it was apparent to all sides that a stalemate in the conflict had been reached and movement either way - towards the advancement of IRA objectives or British government objectives - was highly unlikely to materilaise.

An indication of the extent to which debate on the concept of republicanism has moved on in recent years can be gauged from the heated discussions over the meanings, uses and abuses of the term by a previous generation of political leaders.
Charles Haughey, the then leader of Fianna F…il, contended that the Irish republicanism to which his party gave allegiance was "the political embodiment of the separatist, national tradition that is central to the freedom and independence of the Irish nation".
By far the most notable feature of these views on the nature of Irish republicanism is the invoking of nationalist icons, although it is significant that political leaders took refuge with different sets of dead patriots and in different nationalist events.

 Workers' Liberty #57 - What is Irish republicanism. September 1999.
Yet that republicanism, which appeared in Ireland now as the very name of personal and national liberty, was a direct descendant of the republicanism that had confronted the Gaelic-Catholic Irish as a merciless, would-be genocidal force of unrestrained butchery in the 1640s and 1650s.
When republicanism reemerged in the early 1840s as "Young Ireland" it was, in its philosophy of equality and unity amongst all the Irish, the descendant and heir of the United Irishmen.
For the republican movements thereafter, that would be the pattern: particular social and political questions and issues, and differing opinions on them, would have to wait on the victory of the "armed struggle".
