FALLON, Niall. The Armada in Ireland.


With maps and numerous illustrations. London: Stanford Maritime, 1978. First edition. Octavo. pp. x, 236. Tan papered boards, title in gilt on spine. A fine copy in very good dust jacket.
In May 1588 the greatest battle fleet the world had ever seen set out from the mouth of the Tagus to conquer England. The fleet consisted of sixty-five heavily armed galleons, twenty-five store ships, and thirty smaller vessels. After the disastrous encounter with the English fleet, some of the ships sought shelter on the western coast of Ireland whose inhospitable ragged and rocky coastline became the graveyard of almost one quarter of the Spanish fleet.
