Residents in Ballina, Co Mayo have paid tribute to former Republic of Ireland manager Jack Charlton by painting a mural of him in the town.

Mr Charlton, a keen angler, fished on the River Moy for many years.

The town's Community Clean Up group painted the mural on a building overlooking the Ridge Pool. 

Locals plan to gather at the site tomorrow afternoon, to coincide with the funeral for the 85-year-old. 

Mayo-based fans and friends of the late Ireland manager will gather on the banks of the Moy at 12.30pm to recall his links to the town. 

The service, at a crematorium in Newcastle, will have limited attendance, due to ongoing public health restrictions in England. 

Local independent Councillor, Mark Duffy, has proposed that a footbridge over the river be named in Mr Charlton’s honour. 

The proposal to formally name the structure "The Jack Charlton Bridge" is expected to be considered by the town’s Municipal District meeting this week.
