Munster Rugby have posted the following message ahead of Saturday’s game with Glasgow Warriors.
Supporters are invited to remember our dearly departed coach, former captain and friend Anthony Foley at Thomond Park when Munster play Glasgow Warriors in the European Champions Cup this Saturday.
From 11am, Books of Condolence will be open for all supporters in the Fan Zone under the East Stand and in the MRSC bar.
A special commemorative match programme, documenting Anthony’s life in rugby and the tributes paid to him in recent days, will be on sale at the ground with a percentage of proceeds going towards a fund or charitable cause to be agreed upon by the Foley family with support from Munster Rugby.
A minutes silence will be observed during which a special tribute to Anthony will take place in the West Stand. SUPPORTERS IN THE WEST STAND are asked to take their seats no later than 12:45pm in order to facilitate this.
On the pitch before kick-off, in recognising Anthony’s achievements and lifelong association with Shannon RFC, the Munster Rugby Supporter’s Club Choir will perform ‘There Is An Isle’, and soprano Sinead O’Brienwill join the Choir to perform ‘Stand Up And Fight.
In further recognising his life in rugby, young players and students from Shannon RFC and his former school of St Munchin’s will form a guard of honour as the teams take to the field.
At half time the girls rugby team from Anthony’s native Ballina/Killaloe will take part in our mini rugby display alongside Bruff, Waterpark and Tralee/Listowel.
