1743- The Battle of Dettingen was fought between the French and British in Bavaria. It was the last occasion that a British King personally led his troops in battle. The battle also gave us the expression “going at them bald-headed” when the Marquis of Granby lost his wig during a wild charge.

1798- Cornelius Grogan and Bagenal Harvey are tried in Wexford town and sentenced to death.

1846- Charles Stewart Parnell was born.

2001- A program to reintroduce the Golden Eagle to Ireland was launched.
