Watch: Ireland Mourns Jack Charlton With 'Put 'Em Under Pressure'

The country stopped at half twelve this afternoon to pay tribute to Jack Charlton, who is being laid to rest near Leeds today.

The Walkinstown Roundabout - the scene of a few famous Charlton-inspired celebrations over the years - was ground zero for tributes, as the D12 traffic rotary was thronged with Ireland fans.

Over at Dalymount Park, Bohemians FC staged their own tribute over the old tannoy, ensuring all of Phibsborough was rocking.

Along the Moy River in Ballina, a mural to Jack Charlton was unveiled overlooking one of his favourite salmon fishing spots.

All Irish radio stations - bar Lyric FM - halted ordinary business to play 'Put Em Under Pressure'. On RTÉ Radio One, Ronan Collins played a particularly poignant version of the song, segueing straight into that classic Kinks tune 'Days'.

We went and competed, just like Jack would have wanted. RIP Big Jack.
