  1. Very interesting reading about the electrification of my father’s home village of Killasser. He informed me that my Grandfather: William Scully worked on the Killasser rural electrification, horse drawing poles to their locations and erecting them. Would you have any records of him working on the Killasser and Swinford electrification schemes.
