WRECK OF A BELFAST VESSEL NEAR WATERFORD.
The Schooner Isabella of Belfast struck in St. Patrick's Bay on Saturday last about three p.m. and in less than two hours became a total wreck. The vessel struck on the Bridge of Brecaun near Slade. There was no way of escape for the crew and when the vessel broke up they floated to near the shore on pieces of wreck when people assembled on the beach With great danger to themselves and managed to reach and rescue the poor fellows. She was bound from Strangford to Cardiff with a cargo of potatoes.
