Why was England so interested in conquering Ireland?

I have often wondered why the Spanish did not try to invade Ireland rather than England in 1588, where they could have conquered relatively easily and enjoyed the support of, say, 98% of the population.

So have I. Its what I would have done taken Ireland then launch an invasion of England With Spanish forces Irish forces and the Duke of Parma's forces. England would have crumbled right into their bubble and squeak. An would have been turned Catholic again.
