Captained by McCalmont and part of the Kelly fleet, the Annagher
sank in Belfast Lough (near to Ballymacormick Point) on 11th December
1937. She is now well broken up but covered in spectacular marine
Originally on route to Llannelly, she was carrying a cargo of over
600 tons of scrap and 16 tons of lead which shifted as the vessel
was turned to put the wind to bear on the other side. A course
was steered to beach the 586 ton steamer but it sank suddenly without
lifeboats being launched. The captain and crew of eight drowned.
One man survived.
