Patrick Buckley was involved in the coastguard attempt to rescue the crew of the Leon XIII off Quilty in 1907. The coastguard lifeboat failed to reach the ship. The crew were rescued by local fishermen in currachs, “ordered” to go to sea by the local PP, according to one of them whose account is on the RTE archive from 1963. Patrick Buckley was later involved in saving the Snowdon Range in Cork Harbour, he fired rockets from the shore to the ship. He and his family lived in a nine-bedroom coastguard residence at Myrtleville, County Cork - I have a family photo taken there.
