The Munster choir delivered a stunningly beautiful version of the Fields of Athenry in honour of Anthony Foley in Thomond Park today.

Joined by the sell-out crowd, the old classic echoed around the ground as Axel was poignantly remembered. The choir also sang the Shannon anthem 'There is an Isle' while the Luke Kelly classic 'A Song For Ireland' was also played over the tannoy.
