Socialist Youth is the youth section of the Socialist Party of Ireland. It has its strongest bases of support in Belfast, Dublin, Cork, Limerick Galway and Maynooth University.

Socialist Youth has protested about issues such as Lebanon, Iraq, inequality and imperialism.

One of its members was also imprisoned as a result of the events around the anti-bin charge campaign.

Socialist Youth have been active in the Shell To Sea campaign in the past and has organised protests, occupations and other solidarity activities with other anti-Shell activists. In mid-2006, Socialist Youth launched a young workers' rights campaign called Organise! which has organised assistance for young workers who face exploitative treatment by their employers. In the North, the campaign goes under the name Fightback! and has placed pickets and protests on low-paying employers.
