President Michael D. Higgins pays his respects in the company of the late Anthony Foley's Munster men.

Munster's win over Glasgow on Saturday was overshadowed by the sudden death of head coach Anthony Foley last weekend, but an emotional Thomond Park said farewell in style to the 42-year-old today.

Among many poignant moments in Limerick this afternoon, Irish President Michael D. Higgins made his way into the Munster dressing room to spend some time with Simon Zebo and company.

He visited the team after the 38-17 victory, which had been preceded by this rousing rendition of There is an Isle.
