A book of condolence has been opened at the IRFU office on 10-12 Lansdowne Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin for members of the public wishing to record their condolences for the Foley family.

The book will be available to members of the public until 17:30 today (Monday, 17th October) at the reception of the IRFU offices.
IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne, commented, ‘The Irish Rugby family has lost a special individual and all our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.  Anthony represented Ireland with distinction and will be fondly remembered for his contribution in the green of Ireland and the red of Munster.”
IRFU Performance Director David Nucifora, commented, ‘Anthony was a young talented coach who was committed to achieving success at his beloved Munster.  As a player and coach his passion and commitment to Munster never wavered and his passing is a significant loss to the game.”  
Ireland Head Coach Joe Schmidt, commented, ‘Over the past few seasons I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with Axel. His insights on the game and good-natured banter ensured he was always great company. He was incredibly supportive of Munster squad members selected for national duty and immensely proud of any Munster man who pulled on the green jersey.  He is a huge loss to both Munster and Irish Rugby.”
