Munster head coach Anthony Foley, passed away this week of a pulmonary oedema caused by a heart rhythm disorder.

The player, coach and team advisor for the province was seen as a gentle soul, strong character and shoulder to rely on.

His presence will be missed by team and country, and this can be seen by the hoards of people lining up outside Thomond Park to commemorate his fantastic career.

A poignant sight. 

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
