    Nearly all the cargo was saved by the people of Bannow and they were all well paid for doing so.
    The captain and his crew who were Spanish stayed in a house which was owned by Mr Cullen.
    There was another ship which was wrecked close to the same spot. This ship was wrecked on a rock which is now called Randale Rock.
    It was loaded with a cargo of Randale tobacco and consequently the rock is known by the name of the Randale Rock.
