Gralton magazine ran for ten issues from 1982 to 1983. It took it’s name from James Gralton, “the only person to have been deported from the 26 counties for political activity”.
From the magazine:
Gralton’s name represents a challenge to established authority, a call for people to take their fate into their own hands and an imaginative application of socialist ideas in a difficult environment. For all that, and more, he deserves to be remembered. That’s why this magazine is named after him.
The following episode of Looking Left from DCTV discusses Gralton and Z Magazine. Hosted by Donagh Brennan, the panel includes Brian Trench, Des Derwin, and Tom O’Connor (who were members of the editorial board of both publications) and Dr. Conor McCabe.
