The funeral of Anthony Foley to take place this Friday

The funeral mass for the late Anthony Foley will take place at 12 midday in St. Flannan’s Church in Killaloe, Co. Clare this Friday.

News of Foley’s passing sent shockwaves throughout the Irish rugby and sporting community on Sunday when it emerged that he had died suddenly in Paris, where the Munster team were based ahead of a Champions Cup clash with Racing 92.


Foley’s remains will be flown home to Shannon Airport tomorrow, Wednesday, from where they will be brought to his family home (private) in Killaloe, Co. Clare.

They will lie in repose at St. Flannan’s Church, Killaloe from 1pm to 8.30pm sharp on Thursday evening. People intending on paying their respects to Anthony are asked to attend early. House afterwards is private.

The funeral mass will take place at 12pm on Friday at St. Flannan’s Church, with church reserved for family and friends only.

A special area will be set aside to facilitate media outside the church, near speakers.


Burial afterwards will be at Relig Núa Cemetery, Killaloe. Family flowers only.
