The 26 foot fishing vessel Lady Eileen sank near Spanish Point, Co Clare, Ireland. The Lady Eileen was last spotted near the Spanish Point as the two crew were relocating their lobster pots ahead of a predicted storm. When the vessel failed to arrive later that night, an alarm was raised and a search began. The search and rescue found the sunken Lady Eileen the next day in 33 meters of water. The two crew bodies were found trapped in the wheelhouse and were later recovered. The Lady Eileen was equipped with a VHS radio, but no distress call was sent. The weather at the time was reported as calm. The cause of the sinking remains a mystery. Reports suggest the vessel either had suffered a leak or caught by a freak wave. In either case, the men on board the Lady Eileen were caught by surprise when the fishing vessel sank.
