Inscription.  
In memory of
all lost seafarers
from the port of Kinsale

Kinsale Hooker
19th c. Fishing vessel

His hooker's in the Scilly Van
when seines are in the foam
but money never made the man
nor wealth a happy home.
So, blessed with love and liberty
while he can trim a sail
he'll trust in God and cling to me
the boatman of Kinsale
Thomas Osborne Davies 1814-45
