Wreck of the Mexico in Ballytiegue Bay on 14th Feb. 1914 during a gale of South wind and heavy seas.
The schooner coming from Mexico, bound for Liverpool, with a cargo of Mahogany struck off the south of the Kerragh Islands one mile off the shore. The Fethard lifeboat put off to rescue the crew of the vessel, and while manuavering the lifeboat into position to take the crew of the vessel she was caught by heavy seas and dashed to pieces on the rocks.
