#OnThisDay 1798 Fr. John Murphy, the leader of the Wexford rebels, was stripped, flogged, hanged, decapitated, his corpse burnt in a barrel of tar & his head impaled on a spike. This was meant to be a warning to all others who fought against the British Crown.

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.
