Jack Charlton passed away just over a month ago and the tributes to the former Ireland manager continue to crop up all over the country.

Such was Jack Charlton's immense contribution to Irish culture and society, his death was marked by everything from postmarks to murals to potential statues and the possible renaming of a stand at Leeds United's Elland Road in his honour.

Last month, a mural popped up in Jacks' favourite Mayo town of Ballina and a similar tribute has now appeared in Waterford. Taking pride of place on the side of Norris' Bar on the Slievekeale Road, the mural was painted by Waterford street artist Caoilfhionn Hanton and a picture of the work was shared by Waterford FC...

Jack was a man who was fond of a quiet pint in various spots around Ireland and he would surely have appreciated this special tribute in Waterford. A job well done by Caoilfhionn and you can check out more of her work here.
