Eagle Island

Rogue waves, long considered to be myth, were not scientifically proven to be real until 1995. However, in 1861, a potential rogue wave struck the East lighthouse which stood over 200 feet above sea level on Eagle Island, Ireland. The event damaged the lighthouse, shattering 23 panes of glass, breaking parts of the Fresnel lens, and filling the tower with water.
