Schooner Sunbeam at Rossbeigh Beach Glenbeigh, Co. Kerry
Schooner Sunbeam. A Wooden Schooner Built in 1860 by Walters in Exmouth. She was owned by her Builder up to 1874 and was then bought by Richard Kearon of Arklow. In January 1904 when on a Voyage from Kinvara to Cork she was driven ashore in a storm and wrecked with no loss of life.
After the storm early January 2014 the remnants of the Sunbeam have moved and she is now lying fully exposed some distance from her original position. The Sunbeam has been an attraction for photographers for many years it may no longer be as photogenic as hitherto but lets hope some one takes an interest and preserves the remnants.
I note from no less then 36 photographers and news websites with copyright tags stuck to all their own work, borrowed my little piece of history above with out mention or link back.
