#OnThisDay 1919 Dublin IRA raided Collinstown Aerodrome (now Dublin Airport) & took 75 rifles, 72 bayonets & 4000 rds of ammo. This was the IRA’s most successful raid, which involved rushing the sentries, getaway cars, British army uniforms, drugging dogs &more.
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.
