Petitioning Taoiseach Leo Varadkar

Name an Irish Naval Ship in honour of Tom Crean

We now have confirmation that a multi purpose ship with full hospital facilities to be used for humanitarian purposes, will be built as the flagship of the Irish Naval Fleet and will replace the current flagship, the LE Eithne. 

This vessel could meet the goal of our campaign, if it were to be named in honour of Ireland's forgotten hero, Tom Crean.

Crean exemplified humanitarianism having saved the lives of 28 men over three separate occasions and for his extreme bravery he was awarded The Albert Medal. Since his passing in 1938, his country has not officially recognised him and naming a ship in his honour is an opportunity to right a wrong and satisfy the demands of his growing worldwide following. 

Please sign this petition and join our worldwide crew of his fans at our Facebook page where you can also discover his remarkable story.
