26 ships in the Spanish Armada sank off the Irish coast in 1588. Only 6 have ever been found. RTÉ journalist Philip Boucher-Hayes has spent a year trying to find one, the Falcon Blanco.  Philip picked up the trail 431 years later and recorded his trawling through the memories of four octogenarian divers, the folklore of Inishbofin, the Spanish and English archives, and ultimately the seabed of the Galway coast. The result is a podcast series of an actual hunt for sunken treasure. 
Philip will give Hinterland a behind the scenes peek at the making of his podcast series Falcon Blanco, and answer questions about why he hasn't found something more grown up to do with his time than hunting for treasure.
