#OnThisDay 1949 At midnight twenty-six counties of Ireland officially left the British Commonwealth and became a republic on the 18th. Crowds packed on to O’Connell Street bridge to see a 21 gun salute. It was 3 minutes late due to the massive crowds.
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.
