MELANCHOLY SHIPWRECK- Tralee Oct. 23-
We regret to state that the Sally of Workington, Mitchinson master was totally wrecked yesterday in Smerwick harbour and it is most melancholy to add that out of twelve persons on board at the time eleven met a watery grave in sight of numerous spectators who could use no exertions for their deliverance
She was bound from Trinidad to Hull with a valuable cargo of sugar and was forced by stress of weather about a week since into Smerwick harbour. The captain conceived he left her riding in perfect security and went hence to Cork on Saturday to purchase materials for the vessel but the violence of the late gales broke her cables and drove her ashore.
None of her cargo has been saved and among the eleven persons who were drowned we are sorry to include two revenue officers of Dingle John Neligan and James Kennedy that had boarded her. The name of the man who escaped is George Foster.
The Morning Chronicle (London England) Friday November 3 1820.
