Day Trip to Tory Island http://donegalvideos.com/videos/day-trip-to-tory-island/ http://donegalvideos.com/videos/day-trip-to-tory-island/#comments Mon, 05 Nov 2012 11:54:47 +0000 http://donegalvideos.com/?post_type=videos&p=2165 Day Trip to Tory Island

Swept by ocean winds and stung by salty spray, the remote outcrop of Tory Island (Oileán Thoraí) has taken its fair share of hammerings. With nothing to shield it from wild Atlantic waves, it’s a tribute to the hardiness of the native Tory Islanders that the island has been inhabited for over 4600 years. Although it’s only 11km north of the Donegal mainland, the rough sea has long consolidated the island’s staunch independence – as personified by the king of Tory, Patsy Dan Rodgers.

You reach it by a ferry from Magheroarty (just outside Gortahork) which butts its way through the waves like a wayward navigation buoy. The Island is like a granite kaleidoscope where the shifting patterns of light in the seas and skies produce a curious ephemerality. Your reward is a place of bewitching beauty; a home in the past to a tough breed of fishermen-farmers which has also beguiled generations of artists.
