Jack Charlton’s funeral takes place today
Radio stations around Ireland including Cork’s RedFM will play ‘Put ‘Em Under Pressure’ at 12.30 as a mark of respect for Jack Charlton, who will be laid to rest today in the North East of England.
The FAI are asking supporters to wear green for the former Republic of Ireland manager.
Jack’s son, John, has thanked the people of Ireland for their outpouring of support for ‘Big Jack’.
Almost 20,000 people have signed the online book of condolences, and the FAI will honour Jack’s memory in the future when coronavirus restrictions are lifted.
The cortege will pass through Charlton’s home town of Ashington of Northumberland as a mark of respect for the 1966 World Cup winner.
