Patsy Dan Rodgers (Patsaí Dan Mac Ruaidhrí- King of Tory)

An Irish artist and musician, he is Tory Island's best known resident.

Tory Island, or simply Tory (officially known by its Irish name Toraigh), is an island 14.5 km (9 mi) off the north-west coast of County Donegal in Ireland

Since the 1950s, the island has been home to a small community of artists, and has its own art gallery.  Patsy Dan Rodgers was one of the original members of the Tory School of Art, whose patron was the renowned late artist Derek Hill.  They mounted their first combined exhibition at the New Gallery, Belfast in 1968 with shows around the world to follow.

Portraying island life, Patsy Dan's contributions to his island's culture and wellbeing have been recognised by his fellow islanders who bestowed on him the title of King of Tory.

This is a unique tradition that does not exist anywhere else in Ireland.  The king has no formal powers, though duties include being a spokesperson for the island community and welcoming people to the island.
