BAD WEATHER OFF THE SOUTH COAST
BOATS RUN FOR SHELTER
The Lowestoft [sic] trawler, Joseph Barrett, from Milford Haven, put into Cork Harbour yesterday morning, having been forced to stop fishing and seek shelter owing to bad weather. She also landed a member of the crew for medical treatment for an injury sustained whilst the vessel was trawling off the coast.
