#OnThisDay 1916 The first casualties of the Rising occurred. Volunteers aimed to seize a local wireless station to create a naval diversion to allow the Aud to land its guns. The car (pic) took a wrong turn & drove off the pier at Ballykissane killing three.
The three dead men were Cornelius “Con” Keating (of Reenard, near Cahersiveen), Donal Sheehan (of Newcastle West), Charles Monahan (of Belfast).
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.
