With Fianna Fáil in power in 1932, Sinn Féin's situation further deteriorated, as the IRA distanced itself from the party, first by supporting Fianna Fáil in 1932 and 1933, and then by becoming the so-called Government of the Republic“ in 1938. In a context where political action was limited to commemorations and occasional protests, notably that against the 1937 Constitution, Sinn Féin became an irrelevant political force, shunned by its former allies. By the end of the Second World War it was on the verge of extinction.
