Dr. James O'Neill has literally put Northern Ireland's Second World War Defence Heritage on the map. The map in question is the Department for Communities' Historic Environment Map, and thanks to Jim's dedication, it features thousands of sites of interest. From The Great War, through to The Troubles, all defence heritage is available on the map but the lion's share of sites date from 1939-1945. Jim kindly joined us on this episode for a whistlestop tour of airfields, pillboxes, radar sites, stoplines, and lovely big concrete slabs.
