Advocate, Donald, which drifted on the rocks at Roberts Head inside the Point yesterday has capsized against the cliffs stove in her stern and is expected to become a wreck. Arrangements have been made to secure as much of the cargo as possible. Queenstown. April 15.
Daily News, London. Monday, April 19, 1852
Robert's Head The wind falling light and a heavy sea on the shore, vessel missing stays, and perhaps not anchoring timely, she drove on the rocky cliffs of outside the cove of that name and near the Bluff at eastern side.
The crew saved by the coast guard of Robert's Cove. The pilot had left the vessel having passed his limits and the vessel being so close upon a lee-shore she could not avail herself either of Queenstown or Kinsale Harbour. A steamer has been sent to her assistance and it is hoped she may be got off.
Has since become a total wreck. Cargo has washed ashore. Geo. Donald, Carlisle, mr. and principal owr.
