History

" THE EARL OF DUBLIN RUNNING AGAINST A LIGHTHOUSE.
This morning, at an early hour, the Earl of Dublin ran down the lighthouse at the foot of the lower islands, a short distance from the end of the Queen's Island. The lighthouse has been displaced and considerably injured. The occupants of the lighthouse, three in number, names M'ARAVEY, were saved.

It will be recollected that the Earl of Dublin was raised last July by Messrs. HARLAND & WOLFF from where she had been sunk in the lough. She was returning from Glasgow after undergoing repairs when the mishap occurred. She is now lying in the lough. We understand that she has not sustained any considerable injury."
