There was a song composed about the Aurora and the following lines are given below as they were got from Tom Boyd. (Age - 72 years) Laccaduff.
It was on the twenty first of April
We sailed from Belfast town
Bound for Quebec harbour, my brave boys
That place of high renown
To count us all both great and small
Our number being seventy one
It was enough to have been wrecked
Upon sweet Loughros strand

Nine young sailors aboard her
The captain and his wife
Sixty more poor passengers
Were enough to lose their life
It was early by the break of day
She came sailing to the strand
The sailors and the Loughros men
Came safe unto the land
When the captain and his lady
Arrived upon the strand
She was both cold and wet
With her lap dog in her arms
She said unto the captain
