MUNSTER rugby legend Anthony Foley will be buried on Friday and, for some, the devastating loss is still proving hard to take in.
Foley died suddenly of an acute pulmonary oedema in Paris on Sunday at the age of 42 and his funeral takes place at St Flannan’s Church in Co. Clare at 12pm.
Many Munster supporters are expected to turn out to mourn the loss and one fan in particular has expressed his emotions by penning a heartfelt song in Foley’s honour.
Titled 'Heroes Get Remembered But Legends Never Die’, amateur musician Cathal Reynolds hopes his creation can help others get through a difficult time.
“I felt like writing this song because, obviously, everybody around Munster and Ireland is very upset by the passing of a legend,” he says.
“So I wrote it to try and express just how everybody is feeling. Hopefully it can help everybody get past a difficult situation. Heroes get remembered but legends never die.”
