#OnThisDay 1923 Patrick Geraghty O/C Offaly I Brigade (Top pic) & Joseph Byrne Adjutant (Bottom Pic) were executed by the Free State in Portlaoise. Geraghty was caught with a pistol but Byrne was unarmed but was executed on trumped up charges. This was to demoralise Offaly IRA.

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.
