IT is a bullpen of tears, a curtain of weeping scarlet, a proud, heart-stung fellowship of the Munster soil.

October 2016, a week on from Anthony Foley’s sudden passing at 42, just 24 hours after he was lowered into the Killaloe earth, and Thomond Park is throbbing, the stage for an afternoon of immaculately crafted tear-stained theatre.
