#OnThisDay 1919 Constable Michael Downing, 23 of G Division was shot & fatally wounded by the IRA on High Street, Dublin. Downing had walked too near to an arms dump & was shot. He died days later despite a blood transfusion, one pint donated by a colleague.
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.
