" A letter from Limerick says that a French smuggling vessel belonging to Nantz called the Comte De Dillon of 160 tons was drove on shore in a gale of wind the 12th instant at the mouth of the Shannon and entirely lost.
The crew were saved as was some part of her cargo , but information being given by one Murphy one of the crew that she was in the smuggling trade and had disposed of some part of her cargo on the coast the revenue officers seized what was saved out of the wreck. "
