Description

Rugadh Patsaí Dan Mag Ruaidhrí i mBaile Átha Cliath. Tugadh isteach ar altram é chuig lánúin gheanúil in Oileán Thoraí, Co. Dhún na nGall go mall sna 1940í, agus é ceithre bliana d’aois. Bhí saol breá folláin aige ar an oileán bhríomhar seo, mar fheirmeoir, iascaire, ealaíontóir agus mar cheoltóir. Rinne Patsaí iarracht theacht ar an bhreith-mháthair ach cheil na húdaráis an t-eolas sin air. Throid sé go fíochmhar, agus threoraigh feachtas, in éadan bhánú an oileáin in 1980. Rinneadh Rí Thoraí de in 1993. Cé nach bhfuil scríobh na Gaeilge ag Patsaí, insíonn sé mór-eachtraí a shaoil don Dr Art Hughes sa leabhar seo.

Patsaí Dan Rodgers was born in Dublin. At four years of age, he was adopted by a caring couple on Tory Island, County Donegal in the late 1940s. He had a fine, healthy life on this lively island, on the edge of the Great Atlantic Ocean as a fisherman, farmer, artist and musician. He rightly resisted, and campaigned against, attempts to have the island abandoned in 1980. He was made King of the island in 1993. Although Patsy cannot write in his native Irish Gaelic he recounts the main events of his life in this language to Dr Art Hughes – the basis of this book.
