#OnThisDay 1649 New Ross, Wexford fell to Oliver Cromwell & his New Model Army. The garrison surrendered just as a hole in the town walls was made. Cromwell allowed them to leave with their arms. No civilians were killed but Catholicism would not be tolerated.

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.
