#OnThisDay 1171 King Henry II landed at Waterford with an army of 500 mounted knights, 4,000 men-at-arms & archers. He was the first king of England to set foot on Irish soil. He took the submission of many Irish kings & Norman lords but not The High King of Ireland, Rory O’Connor or the O’Neills of Ulster.

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.
