3rd August 1689

Dunree, on the western side of the Inishowen peninsula, overlooking Lough Swilly in County Donegal.

 
From Richards’ Diary of the Fleet:

 

“Saturday 3rd [August 1689]. Nothing of news from the enemy, except that he or they were retired to Strabane, ten miles from this place. This day by the Major-General’s orders I gave him an abstract of my Journal since our being at Inch, to send home to the King. In the evening, the Major-General ordered the Dartmouth frigate, Capt. Henry Withers, to Liverpool, who is sent to the King and Parliament with an express of our great success against the Irish Papists.”
