Tory Island

Tory Island Donegal (also known in Irish as Oileán Thoraigh) is located nine miles off the North West coast. The island is approximately 5 km long and 1 km wide. It has a population of 170, divided among four towns — An Baile Thoir (East Town), An Baile Thiar (West Town), An Lár (Middletown) and Úrbaile (Newtown). It is part of the Donegal Gaeltacht and Irish is the island’s main language. Since the 1950s, it has been home to a small community of artists, and has its own art gallery.
