In the 1798 ‘Ballad of Ann Flood’, the author celebrates the reaction of Ann Flood who killed a Hessian captain in self defence after the Battle of New Ross. The writer laments: ‘she should have been with us on Vinegar Hill, with a fine pike the foe to kill’.

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.
