Maureen Sweeney (née Flavin) was a meteorologist working in Blacksod weather station in Mayo. On her 21st birthday, Maureen took a weather report noticing a drop in atmospheric pressure. This info was passed to the Allies which postponed the DDay landings.

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.
