Dozens of Republic of Ireland fans gathered at the Walkinstown Roundabout in Dublin yesterday to recreate the fun of Italia '90 and give Jack Charlton a rousing send-off.
Fans were kitted out in their green, white and orange, and armed with Ireland flags and bunting in honour of the former Ireland manager who was laid to rest yesterday.
His funeral concluded at 12.30pm and as a mark of respect, radio stations across the country played 'Put 'Em Under Pressure', the official song of the Republic of Ireland national football team's 1990 Fifa World Cup campaign.
Italia '90 scenes were recreated in Walkinstown, where the roundabout is famous for the joyous footage which followed David O'Leary's penalty, sealing Ireland's spot in the World Cup quarter-final.
Gerry McGeough, the owner of the Cherrytree pub beside the Walkinstown Roundabout, said an attempt was made to recreate those triumphant memories - but with social distancing.
"We tried to have an event that was socially distanced although we did get quite a big, big crowd in the end but it was well policed," he said.
"It was a quiet and considered remembrance for a man that made Ireland believe. It was such a dark time, the 80s were such a bleak time and in 1990, Jack gave the country something to believe in.
"It was a time when Ireland stepped out of its infancy."
Joyous crowds held up placards that read 'Give it a Lash Jack' and the bar's resident DJ played the Put 'Em Under Pressure anthem, which had revellers singing along.
People danced in the streets, singing along and thinking back to the time of Italia '90.
Catherine Walsh from Templeogue said she remembered the excitement of the era.
"I'm here to enjoy the moment with the kids," she recalled.
"I was only nine or 10, but I remember the excitement and the kids watching it on TV in school, everything closing down for the day. It was brilliant."
Organiser Glenda Guilfoyle said she planned the gathering at the Walkinstown Roundabout because of its significance during Italia '90, where fans celebrated the Republic's success.
"We felt we had to so something to mark his life so we just made up some signs, organised a DJ and rallied the people to join in," Ms Guilfoyle said.
"Around 200 people came and although we had had some concerns about a large crowd, we were happy with the amount that attended.
"It was a great atmosphere, very emotional, but euphoric and dignified.
"We had the wreath-laying ceremony and spent the rest of it singing and dancing.
"It brought back a lot of memories. We sang the usual football songs, including Put 'Em Under Pressure.
"It was a lovely, fitting tribute. It was a very Irish tribute and send-off and he would be happy.
"He meant a lot to the Irish people."
