Sinn Féin the name used for several republican political parties within Ireland, all claiming to be the descendant of the original party established in 1905. Translated from Irish Gaelic, the name means "ourselves".

In modern usage, Sinn Féin refers to the political party which promotes Irish republicanism, which was founded in the 1970's. It is often seen as the political front of the Irish Republican Army.

Sinn Féin is dedicated to building a United Ireland, via the elimination of Northern Ireland as part of the United Kingdom.
