#OnThisDay 1944 The 38th (Irish) Brigade were invited to the Vatican for a meeting with Pope Pius XII. It was attended by both Catholics & Protestant soldiers. Pius said “You belong to the nation which has ever belonged to God’s church since St Patrick.”
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.
