#OnThisDay 1690 Patrick Sarsfield guided by Galloping Hogan intercepted & destroyed a Williamite supply train at Ballyneety, Limerick. They destroyed 16 cannons & burned over 150 wagons full of food, arms & ammo. Famously as he entered the Williamite camp he shouted ‘Sarsfield’s the word & Sarsfield’s the man.’

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.
