RTÉ will re-show Anthony Foley documentary after large parts of Munster missed it because of Ophelia

The documentary aired on the anniversary of the rugby legend’s death in Paris.

RTÉ SAYS IT will re-show last night’s documentary about Munster coach Anthony Foley after many in the province missed it.

Thousands of homes across Munster were without power as the programme Anthony Foley: Munsterman, aired on RTE 1 last night due to Storm Ophelia.

The documentary aired on the anniversary of the rugby legend’s death in Paris.

The documentary received widespread praise on social media and was briefly the most talked about topic on Twitter, ahead of Ophelia.

However, some users lamented missing the programme due to electricity and internet outages across the country.

RTÉ has told TheJournal.ie that the programme, which is available on the RTÉ Player, will be repeated.

“Anthony Foley: Munsterman will be repeated on RTÉ One and we hope to be able to confirm a broadcast date and time very shortly.”

Yesterday, Foley’s wife Olive said of her husband’s untimely death:

“At the very worst time in life, we saw the very best of others. That, we will never forget and we hope to be able to one day return the generosity.”

It’s expected that the re-run will air on Monday, 30 October, at 10.35pm.
