  Abandoned 'ghost ship' runs aground on Cork coast A 'GHOST' ship has run aground off the Cork coast as Ireland was battered by Storm Dennis and winds of up to 120kmh.

The 80 metre (240ft) vessel was driven ashore east of Ballycotton in east Cork by raging seas and left wedged on rocks by the high tide.

Both the Coast Guard and Naval Service are monitoring the situation though the vessel was empty and unmanned when it ran aground.

It is understood the vessel had been abandoned over a year ago on the high seas as part of a complex maritime dispute.

Unconfirmed reports indicated that the 'ghost ship' involved, a merchant vessel, could be the MV Alta which was abandoned in October 2018 roughly 1,400 nautical miles south east of Bermuda.

The vessel, if it proves to be the MV Alta, was discovered by a Royal Navy ice patrol ship in September 2019 drifting in the mid Atlantic.

The Royal Navy crew found no one on board.

The MV Alta made global headlines in 2018 when the US Coast Guard rescued its 10-strong crew after they had been stranded on the disabled ship without food or water for 20 days in the west Atlantic.

At the time, the ship was under a Tanzanian flag and had been en route from Greece to Haiti.

However, it encountered mechanical problems which the crew were unable to repair.

It had been drifting away from Atlantic sea channels for almost 12 months before a succession of Atlantic storms drove the vessel close to the Irish coast.

The sea surge from Storm Dennis is understood to have driven the vessel towards the east Cork coast before it became wedged on rocks just a short distance from dangerous cliffs.

Initial indications are that the vessel does not pose an immediate pollution threat.

However, Irish officials will try to ascertain the level of damage suffered by the ship's hull and whether it can be successfully towed away from the Ballycotton shore and taken to port for repair or scrapping.

Locals are worried that the vessel, if it breaks up on the rocks, could pose an environmental and pollution threat to the area through the leakage of engine and fuel oil.

Ballycotton is a famous fishing port while, just around the headline, Garryvoe ranks as one of Cork's most popular beaches with several large caravan parks.
