James Carr Muineagh had a boat tumbled on her mouth on a nice level green up at the full sea mark at a place called the Ben Point. A man named Gorge Morrow who lived in the town land of Seedaugh was going home from raking that night and he noticed that the boat was in danger of been lifted by the wind so he went up and wakened James.
