#OnThisDay 1504 The Earl of Kildare defeated the Lord of Clanricarde at the Battle of Knockdoe in Galway. The majority of the fighting was done by Galloglass mercenaries. The first gun used in Irish battle was recorded but it was used as a club not a firearm.

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.
