Big Jack Charlton in the Bridge House in Tullamore in 1989

As a guest of Harp Lager the late Jack Charlton participated in The Great Soccer Debate in Bridge House, Tullamore on November 29, 1989.

A huge crowd gathered in the ballroom for the event which was a great success and paved the way for many other soccer stars from that team to visit Tullamore such as Paul McGrath, Niall Quinn, Pakie Bonner and John Aldridge.
