A telegram received in Ennis during the week
confirmed the worst fears that had been entertained
as to the safety of a young man named Martin
McMahon, from the Craigbrien district, about five
miles from Ennis. It was known that he was a
passenger on the ill fated boat, and though his name
did not appear in the list of survivors, it was hoped
he might have been rescued, but it is now definitely
stated he has been lost. He was a fine athletic young
man and very popular in his native district.
It is said that some West Clare people were on
board, but our enquiries failed to trace their names
and addresses.
