Laying the shore end of the Atlantic telegraph cable

Laying the shore end of the Atlantic telegraph cable at Foilhommerum, Isle of Valentia, Ireland. The first attempt at laying a transatlantic cable had been in 1858. In 1865, Brunel's Great Eastern set out on a second attempt to but the expedition had to be called off due to bad weather. A year later, the first successful laying of a transatlantic cable between Foilhommerum Bay, Ireland to Heart's Content, Newfoundland also recovered the abandoned 1865 cable. Date: 1866
