#OnThisDay 1920 Longford IRA attack the Drumlish RIC barracks. The IRA had two large bombs which failed to detonate because the gelignite had been frozen. Sean MacEoin was later thankful of this because they were too close when they tried to detonate it & they would’ve all been killed by the explosion. Eventually the IRA withdrew. No casualties on either side.
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.
