SPANISH ARMADA EXPERIENCE

Sunday 30th April 2017
Join us along this stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way if you want to get a blast of fresh sea air, see some ancient fossils, archaeological sites, flora and hear all about the hugely famous story of the ill-fated fleet of the mighty Spanish Armada.

In 1588, King Phillip II of Spain had ordered over 130 ships to sail from the port of La Corunna for England with the intention to invade. They failed. On a desperate attempt to flee to Spain, over twenty five Spanish ships became wrecked off Ireland’s coast. Three of them were wrecked at Streedagh.

We'll tell you the miraculous escape story of one of the Captains, Captain Francisco De Cúellar who survived brutal treatment when he was washed to shore and had to watch his comrades die. He was aided by Gaelic Irish chieftans and fought for them in return. It is an amazing story.

Meet at Armada Monument near the beach at 12pm.

Terrain/conditions: rocks, sand, shore, sometime slippy. Wear hiking boots if you have them and wear/bring a warm jacket and hat. Allow c 1.5-2 hrs for this walk. Tea/coffee and treats served afterwards al fresco.
