90 years ago on the 15th of February, a Spanish(or more correctly Catalan) Ship sailing from Barcelona to Liverpool called the Cirilo Amoros(Loving Girl) drifted off course and ended up wedged on the rocks in Ballyvooney. Fiesta reigned in Stradbally for the following months with wine flowing and spanish dancing every night. New citrus fruits were on the menu for Stradbally residents for months after.
