History

CLYDE SHIPPING COMPANY'S STEAMER ASHORE.

The screw steamer Dunmore (Capt. Stirling) which is owned by the Clyde Shipping Company ran ashore yesterday morning at Bailyquinton Point near the entrance to Strangford Lough on the County Down coast.

The Dunmore was bound from Waterford for Glasgow via Belfast with a general cargo. She is in a very dangerous position and it is feared will become a total wreck.

On board were a number of soldiers and marines. The casualty was caused by a fog. Those aboard did their best in the circnmstances. The passengers were all safely landed. The wind during yesterday evening was from the south-east and was knocking the vessel up against the rocks the sea washing over her.

Part of the cargo will be saved. A tug belonging to the company has been despatched from Greenock with pumps to assist if possible in floating the vessel.
