Armada - End of Year Film for ADA 2

 The film was inspired by the real life story of Fancesco de Cuellar, a Spanish soldier who survived being shipwrecked on the Sligo coast only to have to make a perilous trek across the ferocious Irish countryside, avoiding bloodthirsty locals and a vicious British cavalry.

It should be noted that the real story differs however from the end of the film. In real life Franceso de Cuellar survived many months on the run before finally returning to the safety of his homeland.

The film also contains a wonderful musical track composed and performed by Micheal Clarke.
