A row with Johnny Ronan and Richard Barrett’s Treasury Holdings over wind turbine licences, the interference of Michael Lowry and the Department of Energy in Bord na Móna during the 1990s, and a bitter row with Scottish bird activists are among the many diverting anecdotes contained in the new autobiography of Eddie O’Connor, the man who built and sold Airtricity and Mainstream Renewable Power.
