Boarding in Limerick (1850)

Set in Ireland in 1850, this is the terribly sad story of the drowning of a young man helping a young woman to board a small motorboat already underway.  Pushing the young lady aboard, the young man could not make the boarding himself and drowned after he had been struck by a part of the  stern paddle wheel.
