556-1954 Crowning of King of the Island, Dalkey

Dalkey Island, Co Dublin, Ireland.- Crowning the King of the Dalkey Island by Members of CARA.18/07/1954

The Island has been occupied at various times in prehistory (possibly as long as 6000 years there is an early 7th century Christian Church, St Begnet's)

In the late 18th century a mock title of "King of Dalkey" was created to poke fun at the pomposities of the government of the day.
