Rose MacNamara was Vice- Commandant of the Cumann na mBan detachment in the Marrowbone Lane garrison during Easter Week. When the garrison surrendered, Rose & the women were told to leave but they demanded to be arrested & they sang all the way to Richmond Barracks.

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.
