The early days

Charlton arrives in Dublin four days after his appointment as manager
He takes his place in the dugout for a friendly against Uruguay 


He gives Liam Brady a slap on the arse for a job well done against Bulgaria

Euro 88

Manager and assistant embrace after Ireland beat England

Inside the dugout against Holland

The aftermath

Jack congratulates John Aldridge on his first goal for Ireland


Himself and Setters head to the 1989 All Ireland hurling final


Italia 90

The joy of qualifying for the knockout rounds
And the pride despite a loss to Italy


We're going to USA 94!

Jack and Albert Reynolds celebrate a 1-1 draw with Northern Ireland

Hats, caps and hats

With some nice shorts to boot

The time for mucking about was over

As things got heated in America

His trademark one armed salute to fans popped up again after we beat Italy

But he found himself banished to the stands for Norway

The homecoming

The sunglasses remained

And it was time for some fishing

The latter years with Ireland

There was the time he met Chris De Burgh

And had to ask Roy for De Burgh's album back

But Euro 96 qualifying was his last hurrah

Post-Irish management

He tried his hand at hurling

And still keeps up the old football


We love you Big Jack
