Explorers Hall of Fame

These are famous Irish people and also Irish people whose deeds are often forgotten. Under the umbrella of our All Ireland Hall Fame we cherish the Golden Memories of our famous Irish Explorers.

Nellie Cashman and Tom Crean are just two Irish people of many Irish explorers who threaded over dangerous and life threatening adventures and came through unscathed.

Our Hall Fame search for adventurous Irish people of times past and current, will take us on fact finding research projects over the next few years.

We look forward to exploring great feats by Irish people and also by descendants of Irish people.
