Published by O'Brien Press, 1984 in co-operation with the ESB, this is engineer Michael Shiel's account of the long process of Irish rural electrification, after WW2. The effects of this long campaign, made difficult by the dispersed nature of Irish rural and farm settlement, is described by the author as a quiet revolution which transformed the lives of rural dwellers, lifting them instantly out of nineteenth century conditions.
