Rí Thoraí. Ó Chathair go Creig
Patsaí Dan Mag Ruaidhrí

Eagarthóir agus Aistritheoir AJ Hughes.

Rugadh Patsaí Dan Mag Ruaidhrí i mBaile Átha Cliath. Tugadh isteach ar altram é ag lánúin gheanúil go hOileán Thoraí, Co Dún 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 a bhreith-mháthair ach cheil na húdaráis at t-eolas sin air. Throid sé go fíochmhar in éadan bhánú an oileáin sna 1970í agus 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. Is cinnte gur scéal é ar fiú a inse - agus glacfaidh sé a áit mar scéal suimiúil, spreagúil i leabharlann an domhain.

An t-eagarthóir: Art Hughes a thaifead saol Phatsaí i nGaeilge, a d’eagraigh an t-ábhar i gcaibidleacha, a d’aistrigh an leabhar go Bearla agus a chuir réamhrá, innéacs agus gluais leis an tsaothar.

The King of Tory. From City to Crag – Patsy Dan Rodgers.

Edited and Translated by AJ Hughes.

Patsy Dan Rodgers was born in Dublin and, at four years of age, 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 attempts to have the island abandoned in the 1970s. 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 to Dr Art Hughes. It is certainly a story well worth telling and it can take its place as a fascinating and inspirational story in the world’s library.

The editor: Art Hughes recorded Patsy’s life in Irish, arranged the material by chapter, translated the book into English and wrote the introduction, appendix and glossary.
