#OnThisDay 1920 Kevin Barry, an 18 year old medical student was captured after a failed ambush on British soldiers on Bolton St, Dublin in which 3 soldiers died, one 15 years old as well as a Volunteer. Barry was arrested and tried, with some dubious evidence and became the first republican to be executed since 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.
