Kinsale, Co. Cork

Just a street scene from Kinsale in County of Cork: What a lovely little city!!!

At the fortress of Kinsale

The size of this hughe fortress shows how important for strategic matters this city once was.
In fact spanish and irish forces battleded here against the british and at the picture its shown the little monument to recall the common efforts of both countries.
The text of it says in english, gaelic and spanish: "In memory of the expeditionary force of Juan de Aguila to Kinsale on the IV Centenary 1601 - 2001. The cultural association of the Invencible Armada of La Coruña Spain. Unveiled by president of Ireland Mary McAleese 22 september 2001"
