#OnThisDay 1921 Two Auxiliaries, Leonard Appleford (Left)& George Warnes (right) were shot dead by the IRA on Grafton Street. The IRA’s plan was to encircle Grafton St & kill all Crown Forces there but most Volunteers couldn’t pass through British checkpoints.

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.
