This is the second Erria , The first one while on passage in ballast to Derry hit a floating object which disabled her steering coming across Portstewart Bay , It was blowing a full northerly gale at the time and in darkness, she went ashore under the cliffs to the north of Inishowen Head Lighthouse, Her crew of 5 were rescued by breeches buoy .

Fred, I think Tomin has it right -- She arrived here on the 19th Jan. 1981 after a very bad 9 day passage in NW gales from Faro with a cargo of dryed grapes, and sailed to load potatoes in Derry on the 21st only to encounter the same weather of the North coast. She was a small blue hulled Danish vessel. The master was owner. The above vessel arrived here in Dundalk on the 19th May 1994 with corn gluten, also a Dane. Charley

Reading your comments reminded me the one that went ashore had previousley left Larne that day, so she must have called in there on her way from Dundalk Charley ?

I'm posting a photo of her leaving Larne.

regards Kenny.
