#Onthisday 1921 Auxiliary Company Commander Lt. John MacKinnon, a man with “the air of ruthless military efficiency’, was shot while playing golf in Tralee. IRA Vol. James Healy (a WW1 Vet) shot him with a rifle from up a tree as MacKinnon tee’d up a shot.

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.
