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.
