The Incredible Reaction To RTE’s Stunning Anthony Foley Documentary
Former Munster captain and head coach Anthony Foley’s life was celebrated tonight in a moving documentary one year on from his tragic passing.
Foley’s remarkable story was told from his days as a schoolboy player with St. Munchins College, all the way through up to his time with Munster as a captain and head coach.
The likes of Ronan O’Gara, Jerry Flannery, Rosie Foley, Conor Murray, Simon Zebo, Paul O’Connell and CJ Stander all spoke about him in life and after death, in some heartbreaking interviews.
Anybody that watched it was truly taken a back and touched by a wonderful piece of film.
10 seconds in and already this is hard #Axel

Quite emotional watching this wonderful documentary. Axel is such a loss to Munster but nothing compared to the loss to his family! #Axel
