Poetry Day Ireland: ‘Boys from the E.S.B.’

To celebrate Poetry Day Ireland this April, we’re sharing this lovely poem written about the men (and women!) from ESB who worked tirelessly on the Rural Electrification Scheme. Written by an anonymous school teacher, and submitted to be read at a switch on ceremony in Killanny, Co Louth, the poem was printed in REO News in December 1955.
