There have been many memories of Italia 90 shared over the past couple of weeks, old matches watched, goals and moments relived for an era that brought such unbridled joy to a nation - the Irish football team managed by Jack Charlton had us all in the palm of their hands!

One man who had experienced it all up close and personal had an official role as the team's kitman - but it was known that he was much more than that and quoted as being an indispensable part of the backroom staff to the team in the glory days.

The former League of Ireland referee came on board  with Jack Charlton and the pair became inseparable while looking after many needs of the team from Euro 88, Italia 90 and USA 94.

He shared some incredible memories with Anna and Dec today from the glory days!
