#OnThisDay 1919 Detective Sergeant Patrick ‘The Dog’ Smyth was the first DMP G-man to be shot by the Squad, yards from his home in Drumcondra (his kids carried him in off the road) but died 5 weeks later. Smyth had helped identify leaders of the Easter Rising.

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.
