HMS Ajax - guardship at Kingstown 1858-61. In Feb 1861, there was an exceptional storm on the East coast. Captain Boyd of HMS AJAX and 14 crew were drowned while attempting to rescue the crew of a ship which had gone aground on the back of the East pier. They were swept off the pier by a huge wave. Among others swept into the water was John Skipton Mulvany, Architect of many buildings in Kingstown (Dun Laoghaire), but he was saved. The Boyd monument on the East Pier marks the spot.
