#OnThisDay 1927 Minister Kevin O’Higgins was assassinated by three members of the IRA. O’Higgins, who established the An Garda Síochána, signed the execution warrants of 77 IRA men during the Civil War, including Rory O’Connor, the best man at his wedding.
In his dying breaths, he forgave his killers and told his wife he loved her.

I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now.
I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in.
Hope you enjoy.
