Confirmation that the Marine Institute's new Research Vessel is to be named after Tom Crean "more than fulfils" a long and arduous campaign for the State to honour Annascaul's famous Antarctic explorer.

That was the view of Salford-based Tim Foley, who 11 years ago kick-started a campaign for Kerry Airport to be named after Crean.
