November 1668 (London Gazette) - The seas are of late well secured from the Sally men of war by the diligence of Captain Rooth who with the Garland and Francis Frigate cruising upon their coasts on the 25th of September last, forded a Pink with 8 guns and about 80 men, with her prize, another Pink of 70 or 80 tons, belonging to Dublin, over the barre of Sally, within the command of the castle; which fired many guns for their rescue; but the Pinks striking several times on the sands, both of them sunk on their entrance.
