James Gralton is the only person to be ever deported from Ireland. Gralton was an Irish communist leader who took U.S. citizenship after emigrating there in 1909. However, he returned to Ireland and started a dance hall in Effrinagh, County Leitrim and used the venue to propagate his political views. This was opposed by the Catholic clergy and eventually led to a shooting. This led to Gralton being arrested and deported to the U.S. in 1933 by the government led by Éamon de Valera.
