On Friday night October 14th 1892 there was wild storm at Greystones.
A schooner called ‘Mersey’ was moored at the jetty.
The boat threatened to break up in the storm.
John Doyle and William Doyle with Hebert Doyle cast a rope
out to the boat and were successful.
When returning home a great wave came and
swept them away.
John and William Doyle left large families behind.
A collection was made for them
and a poem was written to raise money for their poor families.
The poem was called ‘The Heroes of Greystones.
You can read that poem HERE
on the Greystones Archaelogical and Historical Society website.
