"Outgunned From Day One"
Since we are talking about things Irish today, I thought this interview with a curator of the National Museum of Ireland was appropriate. In it, Lar Joye, the curator of Irish military history at the National Museum of Ireland, talks about the Mauser (Howth) and Lee Enfield rifles and other weapons used by the volunteers and the British during the 1916 Rising.
The centennial of the Irish Rising will take place on April 24th.
