#OnThisDay 1920 Brig General Cuthbert Lucas was captured by the IRA near Fermoy, Cork. He was held in captivity for four weeks in Clare where he played cards, drank whiskey (a bottle a day) & even saved the hay. He got on well with the IRA & was later released.
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.
