Sligo Food Trail are proud to host an artisan food and drink reception for the delegates of the Spanish Armada International Conference on Friday evening 22nd September. This gives us the chance to showcase the incredible produce of our county to an international audience. The reception is just before the keynote address by Dr. Colin Martin entitled, “Full Fathom Five – into the 21st Century”.

The Conference at the Clayton Hotel brings together international shipwreck specialists and scholars, from Ireland, the UK, mainland Europe and the USA, to explore current historical research and archaeological investigation not just on shipwrecks from that era but also with a specific connection to the events of the Spanish Armada campaign of 1588.

The special guest at the conference dinner on Saturday is the Spanish Ambassador to Ireland, His Excellency José María Rodríguez-Coso.

Sligo Food Trail welcomes His Excellency and all the conference delegates to Sligo.
