To celebrate National Heritage Week and Water Heritage Day 2022 the Inishowen Maritime Museum will be screening the BBC Chronicle Documentary of ‘La Trinidad Valencera’ Dive Expedition on the 21st of August at 3pm
La Trinidad Valencera, was the fourth largest ship in the Spanish Armada fleet, which set out to conquer England in 1588. However, having sprung a leak, the ship sought shelter in Kinnagoe Bay, off the coast of Inishowen, Co. Donegal, where it struck a hidden reef just 200 yards from shore and sunk. In the early 1970’s thirteen divers from the City of Derry Sub Aqua Club discovered the important wreck and were subsequently involved in its excavation.
The food fair that was held at Inishowen Maritime Museum as part of Greencastle Regatta celebrations was a huge success. On Friday the 5th of August, hundreds of people descended onto the grounds of the museum to sample and buy the delicious food that was on offer from the invited food companies, which included BakeRona , Foyle Bia Mara, Malabar Kitchen, The Cocktail Co, small_but_mighty_fuel. The food, the people, the weather and the music which was provided by Ceolan School of Music made the day a great success and we here at the museum would like to thank everyone that helped make it happen and can’t wait for next years one.
