Munster have confirmed that the commemorative programme in memory of Anthony Foley, from last weekend's game with Glasgow Warriors is to be reprinted.

In an unprecedented move, the province have decided to print extra copies of the programme, after the initial batch quickly sold out in Thomond Park on Saturday.

Munster's 38-17 win over Glasgow was the first game played by the team since the 42-year-old's death in Paris earlier this month. Foley's funeral took place less than 24 hours before the team took to the pitch in Limerick.

The programme documented Foley's life in rugby and the unprecedented demand meant the programmes were sold out well before kick-off on Saturday.

The programmes will cost €5 with a percentage of the proceeds going towards a fund or charitable cause to be agreed upon by the Foley family with support from Munster Rugby.

Fans can buy the programmes online, or can wait until next Tuesday when they will be able to buy them in person from Thomond Park in Limerick, or Irish Independent Park in Cork.
