History

SHIPWRECK.- BEREHAVEN, JAN. 13 - On Tuesday morning last the Schooner Lady of the Lake which left Queenstown on last Sunday and notwithstanding the badness of the weather got as high as Dursey Head was wrecked on the small Rone Corrig Rock near the east entrance to Berehaven.

She bore up for this on Monday evening and anchored about twelve o'clock at night at the east entrance far to leeward. During the gale on Tuesday morning before daybreak she parted both chain cables successively and drove on the rock.

Captain Hungerford the Coast Guard officer and Patrick O'Sullivan agent to the Liverpool underwriters were present at ten o'clock with the coast-guard boat and a whale boat and after several ineffectual attempts to rescue the captain and crew they were eventually taken off the rock over which the sea washes at high water by Florence Sullivan of Dinneys and his sons who nobly risked their lives in the cause of humanity.

The cargo consists of coals and machinery for Tralee and it is hoped that the latter which is valuable will be saved as a portion of the spars and sails were taken off yesterday.

Liverpool Mercury etc, Friday, January 21, 1853
