Olive Foley has paid an emotional tribute to her late husband Anthony one http://www.authenticwashingtonnationals.com/Adam-Lind-Jersey year after he tragically lost his life.In a moving statement posted on the Axel Foley Memorial Facebook page, Olive said his untimely passing "brought the family to our knees"."It goes without saying that the past year was one that no preparation could help with. Losing Anthony in any circumstances, not least with no forewarning, brought us as a family to our knees and many, many others also," wrote Olive.

The rugby world united and paid glowing tribute to one of Munster's favourite sons following Axel's passing in Paris and Olive thanked the sporting community and remembered the haunting moment when 'There is an Isle' echoed around the streets outside Thomond Park as Anthony's remains returned home.
"Side by side from the moment we turned into the town with him for that last time. We’ll never come back home so laden with sadness but we will never again be lifted as http://www.officialmarinershop.com/Drew_Smyly_Jersey we were by the sight of the hundreds who lined, in silence, the road into Killaloe. Candles in their hands and more at the roadside. It was a special, serene moment; the softest but most impactful of statements that you were there even more in this moment than you were in his triumphs.
"Among that group was the Irish Embassy, Brett Ritchie Authentic Jersey the undertakers, Ryanair and Shannon Airport, all who went the extra mile in helping us get Anthony home from France. There was An Garda Siochana, not least for their help on Brett Ritchie Authentic Jersey the ground in preparing Killaloe for the influx of such numbers. There was Bus Éireann, and local private operators, for providing a park-and-ride system for the days of Anthony’s funeral.
"I wish also to single out St. Flannan’s Parish/Church in Killaloe for their incredible support, for facilitating such volumes of crowds and for the respect and serenity they afforded us. In that vein, of course, I wish to thank the clergy: Fr. Pat Malone, our close family friend, for the softest and kindest hand as chief celebrant; to Fr. James Grace, PP, Killaloe and the many others who joined them on the alter to make for a fitting farewell to Anthony. To the choirs for their beautiful music and hymns, the many pall bearers for carrying Anthony on his last steps, gravediggers for preparing his resting place.
"Equally, I wish to thank all the sporting clubs of the town, the Scouts, Civil Defence, local landowners for providing their lands for parking. The restaurants, hotels, public houses across Killaloe and Ballina all deserve a collective mention for their hospitality and making everyone so welcome. To the many, many others who volunteered in any way. A special word also to Killaloe Boys National School for their support; it’s been much appreciated.
"I thank the tens of thousands who wrote to us in letters or on social media, especially these pages for that special memorial to Anthony and all who have died. They kindly shared their experiences of Anthony, in many cases their own personal tragedies, giving us many encouraging words to help us through.
