#OnThisDay 1848 The Irish tricolour was flown for the first time in public. Thomas F. Meagher flew it in Waterford city. ‘I trust that beneath its folds the hands of Irish Catholics & Protestants may be clasped in generous & heroic brotherhood’.
PS: The flag was also raised in a procession in Enniscorthy commemorating the Battle of Vinegar Hill.
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.
