The Football Association of Ireland have described Jack Charlton as "the manager who changed Irish football forever".
The 1966 World Cup winner with England died last night at the age of 85 after a battle with lymphoma and dementia.
Charlton's family say he passed away in his sleep at his home last night with them by his side.
He took Ireland to a first major finals at Euro 88 and also steered the team to the knockout stages of the 1990 and 94 World Cups.
Jack was a keen angler and had a holiday home in Ballina for years.
