In this episode we talk to David Costelloe. David writes on history and politics on his website Never Felt Better , and in particular has written an extensive series of articles on Irish military history entitled “Ireland’s Wars”, which spans from the earliest recorded conflicts on the island right up to the revolutionary period.

We discuss with David his background and interest in history and in writing, and what led him to create the site and write about military history, before delving in to that history itself and David’s perspective on Irish revolutionary history in particular.

The Ireland’s Wars series of articles is indexed here

    Quick nite

    Thanks again for having me on, I really enjoyed it. Just a couple of thing I wanted to add after listening.

    -Book on Kilkenny I mention was "Kilkenny In Times Of Revolution" by Eoin Walsh

    -At one point I say that there was no activity in "Munster or Leinster" during 1798, pretty sure I mean "Munster or Connacht"!, a slip of the tongue.

    -The IRB man who was sworn in at the door of a pub was Dennis McCullough.
