The Friends of Sinn Féin or Cairde Shinn Féin is the name of five different Irish republican organisations located in Scotland, England, Canada, the United States and Australia.

Each FOSF is associated with the political party Sinn Féin, and works with the Irish Scots, Irish English Irish Canadian, Irish American and Irish Australian communities to foster good relations between the Sinn Féin party and the governments of those countries. The US organisation is one of the chief fund-raising sources for Sinn Féin. In 2008 it was reported that the US remains a major contributor and a "key source of funds" for the party.[1]

The US branch of Cairde Shinn Féin is run by Joe Reilly in Ireland and Roger Locke in the US.
