History

The Undine, of Limerick broke from her moorings at Scattery during the gale and was driven against Money Point where she was wrecked. Some accounts state that all her crew have been lost but we believe there is little doubt that her Captain (Mr. Patterson), Andrew Mahon, Esq., who was a passenger on board and son to Alderman Mahony of this city and three of the crew have all met a watery grave. Eight vessels are on share between Boland's Rock and Kilcairn Battery and but six vessels in the Shannon rode out the gale
