SS Killeavy ?

Again another close up from the National Library of Ireland's archives


If I am right (and I am still looking) I think this is the SS Killeavy

launched in August 1900 and owned by the Clanyre SS co.Ltd W.T Ferris & Co Newry

Later renamed to SPLIT by new owners in 1908 and exploded on Christmas eve 1917 after it's cargo of carbide went on fire near Martinscia

As I said I am not sure, as the name is hard to make out but it looks like the name has been painted over and as this photo dates from around 1908 it might just be her.
