The ship Harvest Queen from Swansea to Baltimore foundered on Saturday evening off the Head of Kinsale. One seaman was picked up clinging to a spar and was brought into Queenstown by the Henry from Limerick.
James Doyle the only supposed survivor of the crew of the Harvest Queen states that she foundered in a gale of wind on Saturday the 5th at 5 a.m off Old Head Kinsale and that he was washed overboard clinging to a spar and was picked up by the Henry of Limerick after being four hours in the water. He also believes the remaining part of the crew took to the boat but he cannot say what became of them as he was below when the vessel was going down and only got on deck in time to cling to a spar as she went down.
