The funeral of Jack Charlton is set to take place next Tuesday following his passing over the weekend.
While only a handful of his closest family members will be in attendance for the mass itself at West Road Crematorium in Newcastle, fans will be able to pay their respects, as he’s brought through the local area, from his family home.
According to the Irish Times, the cortege will stop at the park where Jack and his brother first started playing football together.

Following Jack’s passing tributes came flooding in, with everyone from the President of Ireland to fellow sports stars around the country sharing messages about him.
