ANOTHER SHIPWRECK OFF KERRY
From our Correspondent. Tralee Tuesday.
Yesterday and last night a fearful storm swept over this distrect doing considerable damage. Two ships are ashore in Brandon Bay one of which us a large barque. The coast guard were on duty there all night. A barque is ashore at Ferret Island only one man on board saved. The vessel’s name is Glad Tidings. She had sailed from Shannon. This morning the bodies of the captain the mate and one seaman belonging to her were washed ashore. The vessel was laden with timber from Cardiff. Another vessel lies in Ballyhaigue Bay in great danger.

The following are further particulars of the wrecks consequent on the dreadful storm from N.W which I telegraphed yesterday. The three masted schooner Glad Tidings of Liverpool left ClareCastle in the Shannon on Saturday with a cargo of driftwood for Cardiff.
On Monday night she was blown into Tralee bay in a disabled state and showing signals of distress but nothing could be done for her. She was driven ashore at Fenit and is a total wreck having lost two of her masts. It was then discovered that there was only one man Duncan Bell able seaman on board lashed to the remaining mast the master mate cook and the remaining seamen having been washed overboard during the night.
