Top wreck! Dived it with Alchemy Divers out of Tralee Bay. 2 shot lines, one on stern and the other (I think) towards the bow on the startboard side (conger lives there). Silty in the 5 cargo holds but lots to find - gas masks, bikes, dartboards (!) glasses - everything! Well recommended.

I found this one in May of 1966. Very impressive then Name Breda quite visible on stern, auxiliary helm still in place at stern. Holds full of general cargo. I gather it is now getting a bit broken up now.

I just love this wreck, I have found brass and bakelite razors, binoculars, wine bottles (wine tasted a bit ropey though), shaving kits, bank notes (Rupees), foot pumps and shoe polish (it stinks). If you have found anything else or have the ships manifesto please e-mail me.

For many years after the Breda sank there were reports of a wild monkey running wild in the hills around ardnamucknish.It was reported that the ships company had onboard a pet monkey.Around the 1970s the remains of a monkey were found in the hills with a silver bracelet round it,s neck with the ships name SS.Breda.This story can be found in the Scots Magazine the story was printed around the late 70s early/mid 80s
