The favourable reception which was accorded to the paper entitled ‘The Spanish Armada in Ulster and Connacht,’ which appeared in Vol. I., Part III., April, 1895, of The Ulster Journal of Archæology, and the continued interest in the subject, which seems rather to increase as the literature becomes more extensive, has induced me to re-write the paper, and add much information I was not possessed of when the first paper was printed. Mr. Crawford’s most valuable contribution, which forms the second part of this book, should at least justify the present publication. To Francis Joseph Bigger, M.R.I.A., my best thanks are due for the use of copious notes and references, which have been of material assistance.
