History

ENNIS, Dec. 8 - Liver, of Jersey, Wrecked on Crab Island. Dec. 5 was bound from Kinvarra to England.

The Standard, London, Tuesday, December 13, 1859

WRECK AT BALLAGHALINE. - On Saturday night week a small vessel we believe named the Leuor of Jersey laden with potatoes from Kinvarra to England was driven in and stranded on Crab Island near Ballaghaline the property of Mrs. Gore of Derrymore. The vessel remained together until about two o'clock on Sunday when she went to pieces.

The crew consisted of four men, who brought into the island some of the sails with which they were under cover. They remained on the island until a day or two ago, as no canoe could approach them sooner. They were taken to the house of Ballaghaline by the direction of Mrs Gore's agent John Loney, Esq, Ennis, where they received every care and attention of which they stood in need.

The caretaker of the property sent for the Coast Guards to Liscannor who under the command of Lieutenant Morris with the aid of the police and presence of Robert Johnston, Esq. J.P. took charge of the wreck. George O'Brien, Esq. J.P. of Birchfield also attended at the station and with Mr. Johnston gave every assistance towards the preservation of the wreck.
