Rapparee Cove On the night of 9th October 1796, at 'half after eight' the transport ship 'London' of 'The Ganges Convoy' in coming for this harbour was taken by a 'heavy squall' which 'took and forced her upon the rocks' below, in Rapparee Cove. She was carrying St Lucian prisoners of war, and upwards of 40 brave souls were lost, along with courageous local people who went to their assistance.
