About 25 years ago Pat Kerins of New Quay, and Tom Fahy and Michael Ganor were going to Ballyvaughan in a sailing boat. It was a nice calm evening when they started. She was a centre keel boat, and they did not dip her enough for the strength of the wind.
The boat capsized and they were thrown out. Pat Kerins was the best swimmer. The three started to (?) for the shore. Pat Kerins had his hands out to swim when they got cramped and he was drowned. The other two came in safe.
