#OnThisDay 1920 The first large contingent of Black and Tans arrived in Ireland, though the very first constable arrived on 7th January. Most were WW1 veterans from England, but roughly 20% of recruits were Irish. Comedian Mike Nono made their nickname famous.
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.
