SHIPWRECK ON THE IRISH COAST.Ballywalter County Down, Thursday
During a furious gale from the south-east with heavy squalls of rain and high sea at half-peat one o'clock yesterday morning the lights of a vessel ashore near the Table Rook in the vicinity of Ballywalter were distinguished.
The crew of the lifeboat of the National Lifeboat institution quickly assembled and the boat having been taken on her carriage as near as possible to the scene of the wreck was launched and proceeded to the stranded vessel which proved to be the brig St. George 280 tons of and from Maryport in ballast.
The crew of nine men were then taken into the lifeboat and safely landed.
