"The Deadly Coast" is a series of five half-hour programmes. Each explores a shipwreck that has occurred around the coast of West Clare, its impact at the time, and the often far-reaching effects of the shipwreck down through history. These programmes were made with the assistance of the Sound & Vision scheme administered by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
In this programme, the wreck of the Edmond in Kilkee Bay is explored by Paddy Nolan, exposing the appalling treatment passengers endured before the sailing and on board, as well as those who salvaged what little they could from the shore after the wreck. It is a moving story.
