Looking back on Anthony’s life, Orla asks the questions, ‘Did he know how loved and cherished he was? Does anyone truly know how loved they are in life?’ In the end, after Anthony Foley had passed on, his family learnt that Axel belonged to everyone who connected with him in one way or another. The full scope of what his spirit embodied is only sinking in as his place in history settles.

Not Yet in print. Pre-Order

Our Axel is a fascinating, intimate memoir and powerful, heartfelt tribute to the rugby giant Anthony ‘Axel’ Foley by his youngest sister, Orla Foley. Orla recounts stories from family and friends who grew up with Anthony, providing an invaluable insight into Anthony Foley’s early, formative years. Featuring contributions from Keith Earls and Keith Woods, it is an absorbing and poignant story - full of laughter and tears – of how a young boy from Killaloe became one of the most important and respected figures in world rugby, before his sudden passing at the age of only forty-two.

What was it in Axel, Orla asks, that resonated with people? Anthony Foley embodied something extraordinary: a role model of shear indomitable will and an unwavering, dogged leader who wore his heart on his sleeve. A man of few words yet when he spoke, others listened. Generous and kind hearted, loyal and humble, a man of the people yet shy. A man who never gave up until his heart gave up, and who then showed his community that spirit lives on.
