The Republican Socialist Collective was a fringe Irish republican political group in Northern Ireland formed in 1986.

The RSC formed the political arm of the Irish People's Liberation Organisation, a splinter group of the Irish National Liberation Army, under the leadership of Jimmy Brown. Ideologically the group endorsed a militant brand of revolutionary socialism.

Although the party did not take part in any elections it did organise a number of public meetings and debates in Belfast and Newry. It was disestablished in 1992 when the Provisional IRA eliminated the IPLO whilst Brown was killed by a rival faction within the IPLO.

The group also published a quarterly newspaper called the Socialist Republican.
