The French Armada Anchor in Bantry

French Armada Anchor

An anchor sits in the main square in Bantry Town.

According to the Wikipedia page on the town,

This anchor from the French Armada force in 1796 was discovered off the northeast point of Whiddy island, Bantry Bay, in 1980 by the Dutch salvage company Smit Tak

Couldn’t find much else about it online after a brief search. Odd.
