The Green Party of Northern Ireland (Tuaisceart Éireann de Comhaontas Glas) was a ecological socialist party in the Northern Irish Assembly from its inception in September 2016 to December 2017, and once more from May 2018 - September 2018, serving as the Northern Irish branch of the now-defunct Green Party (2014 - 2019) during that time.

Initially led by StyreotypicalLurker, the GPNI operated as an Other party for its first iteration, only ever holding a single Assembly seat, in Lagan Valley, during that time period. In an era where the national Green Party were seen to be veering away from ecological issues, their Stormont branch kept true to form, and managed to secure the passage of landmark environmental legislation in Northern Ireland during the TobySanderson and SPQR1776 Executives.
