Kinnego Bay

Kinnego Bay

The Trinidad Valencera sank here. One of the Spanish Armada ships.

Some of the locals are dark skinned and are genetically linked to Spanish Ancestry!

Of those that were not taken in by the locals they were murdered having been tricked into safe passage if they laid down their arms.

Some of the ships cannons are on Display in the Tower Museum in Derry. Well worth a visit. More on it later.
