Anthony Foley's 11-year-old son Tony Foley began a campaign called #8masses4no8 following his father's passing. 

The campaign urges people to attend Sunday mass for the next eight weeks, starting today. People then post photos of candles they've lit at mass to social media in remembrance of Anthony 'Axel' Foley and other loved ones who've passed. 

People all over Ireland have posted photos of candles today.
