Like everyone we were shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Anthony this afternoon. He was a proud past pupil of St Munchin’s and we were equally proud to count him among our alumni. As a student he was an immense leader. He captained our Junior Cup winning team of 1989 and our Senior Cup teams in 1991 and 1992 both of whom reached the finals.
We extend our deepest condolences to his wife Olive and his sons, to his parents Brendan and Shiela and to his family and friends. We also extend our condolences to all at Shannon, Munster and Irish rugby.
Today we have lost a legend of the game.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
