Jack Charlton Birthday
Jack Charlton was more than a trail-blazer for Irish football. One of the most successful manager in this country's history, Jack Charlton was a magnet for the camera's during his time as Ireland boss. The glorious World Cup winner took Ireland to our first three major tournaments, and the Irish media, press and people loved him and wanted a piece of Big Jack.
To celebrate his 80th birthday, here are 11 times that the camera worshiped Big Jack during his time with Ireland.

3. "What is that eejit saying?"
4. Under the Monday Night Lights
5. A Model and Nadia Forde launch the 'Biggest Save' Airtricity Campaign
