HC Deb 30 March 1893 vol 10 c1495
MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that another steamer, the Kilburne, was wrecked at the Old Head of Kinsale on Sunday morning last in a fog; and if, in view of these repeated occurrences, and the danger to seamen, he will consider the necessity of securing the most perfect light that can be devised for this most dangerous part of the Irish coast?


I have received from Lloyd's an intimation of the casualty to the Kilburne. This is attributed by them to the inefficiency of the fog signal recently established at the Old Head of Kinsale. This intimation has been forwarded by me to the Commissioners of Irish Lights.
