The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

CHAIR­PER­SON of the Span­ish Ar­mada In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee Ed­die O’Gor­man says the next step is how they now build to­wards the ul­ti­mate goal of GADA (Grange and Ar­mada Devel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion) - to en­sure that an in­ter­pre­tive cen­tre will be built in Grange to house the can­non re­trieved in 2015.

“This way, the tourists will come, the en­tire community will ben­e­fit and Sligo will have placed it­self very much at the heart of the Span­ish Ar­mada story in Ire­land,” he said.

He said the con­fer­ence was “a game changer” in re­la­tion to the con­nec­tion Sligo has with the Span­ish Ar­mada,” he said, de­lighted with the turnout and qual­ity of speak­ers.
