The rusty shipwreck of MV Plassey on Finnis Rock, Inis Oirr or Inisheer, one of the three Aran Islands, West Ireland. It shipwrecked on 8 March 1960, while she sailing through Galway Bay carrying a cargo of whiskey, stained glass, and yarn. She was caught in a severe storm and ran onto Finnis Rock, Inisheer. The wreck is a tourist attraction. She is visible in the opening credits of the television series Father Ted. In early January 2014, Storm Christine shifted the wreck's position on the coast for the first time since 1991.The wreck is now a popular tourist attraction.
