    The Irish Government, led by President Mary McAleese has announced they will help fund efforts to preserve an Antarctic base used by famous Irish explorers Ernest Shackleton and Tom Crean.

    The Government has made a 53,000 Euro donation towards the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust which will help maintain the base .

    President McAleese said “Their endless curiosity, and bravery, their love of life and love of this earth, have left us an enduring challenge to know our world profoundly, to respect it utterly and to take responsibility in our time for the times yet to come.”
