Published on June 1st, 2012 | by Admin1
Contracted underwater archaeologist Julianna O’Donoghue suspended pipe laying works on the multi-million Schull Wastewater Treatment plant when machines struck and partly damaged the wreck last week.
The ship’s cargo of coconuts was uncovered during this process.
Little is known of the wreck’s origins at present as archaeologist’s work continues.
