Lord Mayor’s online book of condolence opens for Jack Charlton

The Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu has opened an online book of condolence in memory of the late, great, Jack Charlton.

Dubliners are being invited to sign the book and leave their own personal tribute to one of the country’s greatest ever sporting icons.

“Jack was an incredibly popular man in this city and right across the country,” said the Lord Mayor. “He was awarded the Freedom of the City of Dublin in 1994, so it’s fitting that we pay our own special tribute to him and give people a chance to say thanks for the memories.”

The book of condolence is available to sign at www.bit.ly/JackCharltonRIP

The Lord Mayor has also announced that the Dublin Municipal Flag on top of the Mansion House will be flown at half-mast from tomorrow until after Jack’s funeral.
