Indie Band Or Trawler Survivors?


February 24, 1914.

From the National Library of Ireland:

These are the crew members of a Norwegian vessel, who survived what is known as the Fethard Lifeboat Disaster. These men were on board their vessel, The Mexico (with its cargo of South American mahogany), when it ran aground on the Keeragh Islands, Co. Wexford, on Friday, 20 February 1914. The Fethard Lifeboat that came to their rescue through a storm was destroyed with the loss of 9 of the 14 lifeboatmen. Not sure where this photo was taken – somewhere in Wexford or Waterford presumably, so please tell us if you know…
