Peter's tale of island life is sure to be a real treasure
In today's newspaper we report on modern-day Robinson Crusoe Peter McClelland. He has sadly bade farewell to his solitary life of 20 years as the warden on the National Trust's Coney Island in Lough Neagh.
Though he regularly visited the local 'mainland', Peter had his own virtual desert island on which to work and relax and he now plans to write a memoir on his time there.
He will find a change in the comparative 'metropolis' of Portadown where he is now living.
Peter's book about his experiences could become a bestseller, especially as the future of the island is uncertain and he may be the last of a rare breed to live there.
