#OnThisDay 1893 George “McIrish” McElroy was born in Dublin. McElroy was a RFC/RAF fighter ace with 47 kills, putting him as one of the top aces in the RAF at the time. In Dublin during the Rising, supposedly he refused to fire on his own countrymen & was transferred to another barracks in a quieter part of 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.
