History

Wednesday night last, the Brig Margaret, from Liverpool for Limerick, laden with coals was totally lost off Kileredane Point in the Shannon. She had no pilot on board and the night being very dark she struck on a reef of rocks between Kinevalla and Rayhill.

At eight o clock and before day-light her masts went overboard and she parted. The unfortunate crew arrived at Kilrush in a most distressing way and it is said were ill used and plundered by the country people.
