#OnThisDay 1920 Black and Tans and British troops raided the home of James Connolly Jr, a Captain in the local Volunteers in Kinlough, Leitrim. After coming up empty handed, the Crown Forces shot dead his father, 70 year old James Connolly senior.
James Connolly Jr was killed two years later during the Civil War.
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.
