Remembering the Armada


SWORD dueling, sand etchings and sand castle building competitions will form part of a special day to
commemorate those lost on three Spanish Armada ships at Streedagh Beach in Sligo in 1588.
Saturday September 19 will see Grange and Armada Development Association (GADA) host a free family
friendly event at Streedagh Beach, to remember the 1,100 souls who perished following the loss of three great
Spanish Armada ships on the beach.
The event is the highlight of the 2015 Celtic Fringe Festival in Grange, Co. Sligo. Now in its fifth year, the
festival provides a wonderful weekend of entertainment, including walks, talks, lectures and music. You can see the full programme here. Or check out the Facebook page.
