The steamer Strathyre, of Glasgow from Bowling to Dublin with coals is ashore at Kearney Point and lies in a dangerous position. The crew were saved after enduring terrible sufferings during the night. The waves broke over the vessel and the crew held on by the rigging. Two boats at length put off from the shore for the steamer and happily succeeded in effecting the rescue of the men. One of the boats was manned by coastguards. The hull of the Strathyre is altogether under water and it is reported that she is split in two.
