Pics: Thomond Park Gets Ready For A Special Occasion This Afternoon

The flags at half mast.

Thomond Park gets ready for an emotional day.

Munster take on Glasgow Warriors in the European Champions Cup at 1pm today, with the eyes of the rugby world focusing on Limerick. The Irish province tragically lost a true hero last week, and the men in red will try to do him justice in the best way they know how; on the field of play.

Anthony Foley was laid to rest yesterday, but he is far from forgotten. There are some moving images from Thomond Park this morning, courtesy of Inpho Photography.
