I am looking for any connections or more information about Thomas Crotty who drowned trying to rescue some French sailors from a brig in Tramore Bay on 25 Jan 1858.

I would like to find out his age, and the name of any family members.

My own Crotty ancestors lived near this area, so there may be a connection, but I would need more information to confirm this.
