Kate Byrne was refused entry to the GPO at the start of the Rising so she kicked in a window & got in that way. In there, she provided medical assistance & made bandages from her petticoat. She ran dispatches & ended some journeys with a bullet in her beret.

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.
