#OnThisDay 1702 Thomas Arthur, Comte de Lally was born in France, his father, a Jacobite from Tuam. Lally fought with the Irish Brigade at Fontenoy, aided Bonnie Prince Charlie in Scotland but was beaten by the British (or rather another Irishman, Sir Eyre Coote of Limerick) in India. For this, he was beheaded in Paris.
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.
