Patsy & Jack Charlton
Patsy & Jack Charlton:
"From Patsy Watchorn to Jack Charlton"

Patsy Watchorn & Jack Charlton"Big Jack", as he is affectionately known throughout the game of football, is a soccer legend. Jack Charlton was a key member of the best team ever to come out of England the side what won the World Cup in 1966. As a manager he dragged the Republic of Ireland from the backwaters of international football to compete with the world's best. As a man, he is noted for his forthright personality - one whose views are respected. He is worshipped wherever he goes -and he's a good friend of Patsy!

There are many occasions these two met and enjoyed the craic, there are series of pics of him and Patsy so it was hard to pick what we publish online. We chose a very special memory and let Patsy talk in his own words about the connection that is between Big Jack and Patsy's greatest hit Dublin In The Rare Auld Times:

"There's so much about this song to be proud of like that it gave me my first gold record. Yet one of the facts I like the most is that it is the favourite song of a of a good friend of mine. He likes to burst into Rare Auld Times and having a good time. Actually, he likes it that much that I had made another gold disc of it and presented it to him. The award is displayed at a place of honour at his house in Newcastle and it reads: From Patsy Watchorn to Jack Charlton!"
