Shipwrecks of Cork harbour Header

shipwreck list heading

The following accounts of wrecks, strandings, and other nautical disasters, cover an area roughly from the Old Head of Kinsale to Youghal

These lists have been generated from Primary sources. In contemporary accounts, especially previous to the 19th Century, the actual date of occurrence could be vague. There could also be errors in vessel names, especially in those of foreign vessels.

A lot of the published reports were brief, with exactly the same reports printed in various publications. They were usually based on either Lloyds List, or reports from local shipping agents.

Many of these accounts are worthy of further research.
