German Ship Seized in the Shannon

LIMERICK, IRELAND – In a significant development, the authorities have taken action by seizing the German full-rigged ship Terpsichore of Hamburg while it was anchored at Foynes Roads in the Shannon. The vessel was outbound and carrying ballast at the time of the seizure.

The Terpsichore had recently arrived in Limerick from Portland, Oregon, where it had transported a cargo of grain for a local merchant. The cargo had been discharged only a few days prior to this incident.

This seizure is likely to raise questions and concerns regarding the circumstances surrounding the German ship’s presence and the broader political context of the time. Additionally, it has been reported that there is a rush to purchase all available horses in the city and district for the Home Army, indicating heightened activity and preparations in response to ongoing events.
