“The Order of May is a token of our country’s recognition of the virtues and merits of those people – both military and civilian – who have distinguished themselves by services rendered and work performed for the benefit of humanity and of the Republic itself. Argentina and Ireland are inseparably united by strong links forged throughout their history, and our navies, joined by traditional bonds of friendship and cooperation, have increased their exchange and interoperability thanks to your valuable contribution. This is therefore, a most suitable opportunity to confer the Order of May upon you, as homage and an expression of our deep respect for your outstanding personal qualities and your vast professional career.”
