#OnThisDay 1871 John O’Neill & his Fenians attack a Canadian customs house & Hudson Bay Company post at Pembina, Manitoba in an ill-fated attempt to invade Canada. The border was 1-2 miles north so they never actually got to Canada & were arrested by Americans.

Hi, 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.
