Aiséirí (Irish: Resurrection) was a political newspaper, published in Dublin, Ireland, from 1943 until 1973.

The newspaper was founded by Gearóid Ó Cuinneagáin as the party organ of Ailtirí na hAiséirghe. This was a minor radical nationalist and fascist political party, founded in 1942. It sought to form a totalitarian Irish Christian corporatist state.[1][2] The party obtained no seats in the 1943 and 1944 general elections and gradually weakened after a split in 1945. It finished up in 1958, but the newspaper continued to be published.[3]
