The Albion was wrecked on the Irish Coast at 4 AM, 4/22/1822

        2.It was the first of April from New York we set sail,
        Kind Neptune did protect us with a sweet and pleasant gale
        Until about the twentieth a storm then did arise,
        The raging billows loud did roar and dismal were the skies.

        9.Our passengers were twenty-seven, when from New York we came.
        Full twenty-five bold sailor lads as ever crossed the main;
        Full fifty-four, we had on board, when first we did set sail,
        Only nine escaped the wreck to tell the dreadful tale.

Interesting. There are some Welsh ballads about a brig Albion, registered in Milford, but wrecked on an outward bound journey in 1820 (or 1821? not sure.) It too was off the Irish coast - the Arklow Banks.
