#OnThisDay 1920 Auxiliary Major John MacKinnon, “the Scourge of Tralee” shot two IRA Volunteers, John Lean & Maurice Reidy, in Mrs Byrne’s home. He then burned her house down as a warning to all. Mackinnon was shot in April by an IRA sniper while playing golf.
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.
