1 Mins read

Sinn Féin Councillor Cathal Mclaughlin has written to the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens council, Mark Fielding, to request a book of condolence be opened for Ireland footballing legend Jack Charlton.

Councillor Mclaughlin said Jack Charlton was a much loved icon to many soccer fans across the council area and indeed across the country.

“We remember the great success, when he led the Irish national side to two World Cups and a European championship,”

Councillor Mclaughlin said.

“Under the guidance of Jack Charlton, Irish football was completely transformed and to him we owe a great deal of gratitude.

Many people will have fond memories of watching the Euros and the Italia 90’ World Cup and will have their own unique experience of that really exciting period in our sporting history.

“I believe that many soccer fans in the Causeway Coast and Glens Council area would appreciate a way to express their thoughts and sympathies to Jack’s family.

“I have written to the Mayor to request that he opens a book of condolences on behalf of the citizens of this area.”
