#IslandNews - Tributes have been paid to Patsy Dan Rodgers, the King of Tory Island in Donegal who died late last week aged 74, as The Irish Times reports.

President Michael D Higgins was among the first to hail Rodgers, an accomplished traditional musician and artist, as an “advocate for Ireland’s island communities”.

Rodgers succeeded his father as the ceremonial King of Toraigh in the 1990s, and respresented a community who were involved in recent rumblings over the island’s passenger ferry link to the mainland that were resolved this past March.

The Irish Times has more on Patsy Dan Rodgers and his legacy HERE.

Update 8pm: This article was edited to clarify that Patsy Dan Rodgers was not directly involved in the recent Tory Island ferry row.
