The Last “King” in Ireland
Toraigh Island is small. It’s got less than 150 inhabitants, one paved road, one church, one grocery store, one hotel and – still – one king. Patsy Dan Rodgers is 71 and became king in 1993. The island’s kingship dates back all the way to the sixth century, but isn’t about royalty or based on one’s bloodline. Rather, the king serves as a unifying face to the island’s rich culture.
