Foley Died From Acute Pulmonary Oedema

The remains of Anthony Foley are being flown home today from Paris.

A French coroner’s report has found the Munster coach died from a lung condition brought on by a heart disorder.

Mr. Foley’s remains will be flown to Shannon airport today, from there he will be taken to his family home in Killaloe, Co Clare.

He will lie in repose at St. Flannan’s Church from 1pm to 8:30pm tomorrow, and Funeral mass will take place at midday on Friday.

The Munster and Ireland rugby legend was found dead in his hotel room in Paris on Sunday.

The coroner’s report says the 42 year old died due to an “acute pulmonary oedema” – a build up of fluid on the lungs brought on by an irregular heart beat condition.
