Meanwhile, there's a rumour that a new resident in Ormsaigbeg, who lives near the shop, is going in with Hughie on some sort of industrial-size pig facility, to be built on several floors in his back garden. This all sounds a bit unlikely, except that yesterday the two of them were working on what looked liked footings. It's bad enough having the tone lowered in Ormsaigbeg by fields full of free-range pigs which sometimes range well beyond their pens, but the idea of having heavy lorries bringing huge quantities of pig feed along the peninsula is appalling. Worse still, there's been no planning permission, though sometimes farmers are exempt. Trust the Diary to keep everyone informed.
