A book of condolences will be open across Munster on Monday October 17 in memory of Munster Rugby legend Anthony Foley.

The 42-year-old died on Saturday night in Paris, as he was preparing for Munster’s first game in this season’s European Champions Cup.

As a mark of respect the seven local authorities in Munster (Clare County Council; Cork City Council; Cork County Council; Kerry County Council; Limerick City and County Council; Tipperary County Council; Waterford City and County Council) will open books of condolence at 12pm  on Monday October 17.

This will allow all Munster Rugby supporters from the province to express their sympathies on the sudden passing of one of Munster’s most faithful and best players.

The Irish flag will also be flown at half mast outside the local authority offices.
