TG4 to air documentary on Anthony Foley's career this week

Axel will air later this week.

TG4 has announced that it will be airing the documentary Axel this Friday (14 August) at 10.15pm.


The documentary looks at the late Anthony Foley's record-breaking Munster career with an in-depth review of the side’s most unforgettable days in Thomond Park and abroad.

It was originally released in 2008 after his retirement, but as you can imagine, it will feel that bit more special since his passing at the age of 42 in October of 2016.

Axel looks at Foley's career, while also showing the inspiring, loving man he was off the pitch, as well as the strong relationship he had with his native city of Limerick.

It features interviews and conversations with Paul O'Connell, Ronan O'Gara, Jerry Flannery, Keith Wood, and many more big names from within Irish rugby.


Speaking about the documentary, director Kieran Hartigan said: "They say you should never meet your heroes. As with so many other things in his too short life, Anthony Foley proved the exception.

"I am proud that this documentary stands as a testament to Anthony’s exceptional career but also to his dedication to his wonderful family".
