Jane ‘Jinny’ Shanahan (back row, 3rd from left) joined the Irish Citizen Army in 1913 & aided workers during the Lockout. Stationed in City Hall during the Rising, she fooled some British soldiers by telling them there were hundreds of rebels on the building’s roof.

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.
