The Adventures of the Spanish Armada Captain

  • Workshop

The pupils of Scoil Naomh Molaise in Grange, County Sligo, are involved in the creation of a comic book to retell the story of Captain Francisco de Cuéllar.

They will be working with class teacher Mr. Seamus Connolly and graphic designer and animator Mr. Daragh Stewart to develop the storyboards, create the artwork, and pen the words as seen through the eyes of Captain de Cuéllar.

Grange has a strong association with the Spanish Armada story, as it was near here that three great ships were wrecked and only a handful, including de Cuéllar, escaped.

This comic book is based on his actual diary and tells of his amazing journey back to Spain over 400 years ago. The aim is to make the story more accessible to a younger audience.

*Please note this event takes place outside Cruinniú, on 14th June.
