#OnThisDay 1916 Cathal Brugha, second in command of the South Dublin Union garrison was badly wounded in an attack & shot 25 times, 9 serious wounds. It was thought he would not survive his wounds, yet he still fired on British troops & sang “God Save Ireland”.
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.
