Lily Bennett was the second Cumann na mBan member to be killed during the Irish Civil War. Bennett was attending a rally held by The Republican Prisoners’ Defence Committee in Dublin when a convoy of National troops machine-gunned the crowd, mortally wounding Lily.
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.
