Italian Ship F. S. Ciampa Goes Down in Gale off Irish Coast
QUEENSTOWN, Feb. 19 -- The Italian Ship F. S. Ciampa, with all her crew, was lost in a gale off Dunwoody Bay. The wreckage came ashore to-day. It is understood the crew numbered twenty, and some of the bodies have been recovered.

The F. S. Ciampa was a three-masted freighter owned by F. S. Ciampa, and hailed from Castellammare, Sicily. She was built in Glasgow in 1886, and registered 1,478 tons net. She sailed from Mexillones, Oct. 9, for Falmouth, England.

New York Times, 20 February 1910

Note: Dunwoody Bay is Dunworley Bay on the east side of Clonakilty Bay



The Wreck Today

She's well dispersed in the rocky gullies at about 51, 34, 23'' N, 8, 45' 39'' W. The front part of the hull was lying on the bottom at about 15m the last time I saw it but the winter storms are slowly destroying it.
