Ken Loach's next Irish-related project may be a movie about Co Leitrim radical socialist Jimmy Gralton.
Gralton remained stubbornly revolutionary socialist in the 1920s & early 30s at a time when many civil war republicans (via Fianna Fáil) were shedding their radicalism and struggling towards the political mainstream.
He was finally deported in 1932, a citizen of the then Free State expelled from that state, without crime, charge or conviction.
He remained in the US thereafter until his death in 1945.
