Seven crew members drowned in a collision between the Kincora and the White Star Line’s Oceanic in the Irish Channel. The Kincora, which traded between Waterford and Limerick, sank almost immediately after the incident. The surviving seven crew members, including the captain, were brought to Queenstown by the Oceanic, which suffered damage to her bow. Although the Oceanic remained in port for examination by divers, it was decided not to detain the ship and it soon left for New York.
