#OnThisDay 1920 The IRA, in their General Orders, stated that women who were convicted of being a spy would not be killed, but instead would have seven days to leave the country. Perhaps, the most famous exception to this rule was that of Mrs Lindsay in Cork who informed the British Army that there was an ambush laid for them in Dripsey. This information saw the capture and execution of seven IRA volunteers.
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.
