[Note 105.3] "He brought her here to serve our town":- The Clare Journal and Ennis Advertiser reported on 7th July 1867 under the headline "New Steamer for the Shannon" that "A splendid new steam boat of great speed has been purchased by the Mayor of Limerick to ply between this City and Kilrush. The name of the vessel is the Elwy which left Liverpool at 1.30 on Saturday so that she will not arrive in the Shannon until this Monday morning. We trust the citizens of Limerick will appreciate as it deserves such enterprise on the part of the Mayor for their benefit and comfort."
