Donal was an ambassador for anti-suicide and a massive Munster fan who struck up a strong friendship with the rugby heroes, with the players carrying his coffin at his funeral last year.

The Munster players have been on the move this week with the #MunsterTour underway. The squad have taken on the ultimate team-building challenge, as six different groups make their way across the six counties, completing challenges and engaging communities along the way.

The tour started yesterday at 10am and the race will culminate in Dingle at 5pm today, ahead of an open training session at Rugbaí Corca Duibhne on Friday morning at 10:30am.

Prior to their race they will have a cup of tea and some refreshments in an emotional reunion with Walsh family.

The players have been busy on social media as well, with the likes of Paul O'Connell, John Holland, Phoenix Jones and Simon Zebo taking the time to pose for selfies and pictures with fans.
