Kerry Airport should be renamed Tom Crean Airport

To offer full and deserved recognition to The Unsung Hero, and a son of his beloved County Kerry, we believe a most fitting tribute would be to rename Kerry Airport in his honour.

Tom Crean, Antarctic Explorer who, on numerous and well documented occasions, showed bravery in the extreme, to come to the aid of and to save the lives of his colleagues, should be recognised for his heroic deeds and we, the undersigned, call on the owners of Kerry Airport, to consider renaming Kerry Airport in his memory.
