In December 1943 the Saltees were purchased by Michael Neale, who styled himself Prince Michael the First, and entered into a protracted dispute with the Irish authorities over his right to govern and taxes. After his death in January 1998 the islands are were passed on to his five sons Michael - now the prince, John Manfred, Paul, Richard, and his daughter Anne. The island is open to free daily visits for anyone who wants to visit and experience its incredible wildlife.
