Of the 260 civilian deaths during the Easter Rising, nearly 40 were children, under 16 years of age. Christina Caffrey (2) was shot dead while held in her mother’s arms. John Foster (2) was shot in his pram on Easter Monday, supposedly by an English lancer.

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.
