WATCH: Amazing tribute to the late Axel Foley as he's inducted into the RTÉ Sport Hall of Fame
What a phenomenal tribute.
Ireland remembered the legendary Munster rugby player and coach this evening at the RTÉ Sport Awards.
His teammates and coaches from Shannon RFC, Munster and Ireland sang his praises in a poignant video that extolled the virtues of someone who was not only a great rugby player, but a great man.
"He's missed up here in Leinster, he's missed throughout the country. He's one of the greats that pulled on the green and the red jersey and we miss him," Irish rugby icon Brian O'Driscoll said of his former teammate.
Axel was given a standing ovation by the crowd, before his sister and former Munster captain Rosie Foley accepted the RTÉ Sport Hall of Fame Award on her brother's behalf.
A truly touching tribute:
