CannonsA PAIR of 16th century cannons wrecked in the Spanish Armada have been uncovered off the west coast of Ireland.

The cannons were revealed after a freak storm disturbed the seabed, uncovering the relics.

Once brought to the surface, archaeologists confirmed that the artifacts dated back to 1570 and were built in Barcelona.

The cannons are currently in storage and will most likely be transferred to a museum following a bidding process.
