City of Chicago
The "City of Chicago" aground. 22nd June 1892.
After running aground, her propeller was kept running to prevent her from slipping into deeper water. The passengers were all rescued, as was their baggage. Three days after the accident she listed and started to break-up. She was commanded by Captain Redford who was suspended for nine months for speeding in fog and not checking his depth.
She now lies at the foot of 200ft cliffs at Ringcurteen Point on the west side of Old Kinsale Head.
