#OnThisDay 1920 Two RIC constables were shot in an IRA ambush outside of Tuam. Two others were disarmed & released. Later that evening, Tuam became the first town to suffer a reprisal as Black and Tans burn the town hall, shoot & throw grenades in the streets.

Hi, 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.
