Watch this fascinating documentary on the Naval Service’s Mediterranean mission
The Crossing premieres Monday on RTE and follows the crew of the LÉ Samuel Beckett for one month of their life-saving mission in the Mediterranean. The documentary shows the tough reality and challenges the crew face every day. This will be a great insight to the vital work that these brave men and women do.
LÉ Samuel Beckett is an Irish Naval Service offshore patrol vessel and is currently deployed in the Mediterranean on ‘Operation Pontus’ – the Defence Force’s humanitarian operation to rescue refugees & migrants in the Mediterranean. Last year on a similar mission it rescued over 1000 migrants.
