He revealed how his son Danny, who lives in Donegal with Amanda and their two children, Jamie and Blake, was linked to some of those who lost their lives.

Danny, who plays Buster Brady, moved from Dublin 20 years ago after he met Amanda in a pub in Letterkenny.

Speaking about the tragedy, Brendan told The Irish Sun: "Like the rest of the country I am absolutely devastated that such a terrible, terrible thing should happen out of nowhere.

“My son Danny lives in Donegal, his wife lost a friend.

“His son lost a little girl friend who he played with in the rugby club he goes to.

“We have been so traumatised over these past few days burying these lovely innocent people who were either filling up or popping in to get some shopping. It's dreadfully sad."

Among those who died were 14-year-old aspiring rugby star Leona Harper.

She was buried yesterday, as was Martina Martin, 49, who was working in the filling station when the incident happened.

The funeral will take place today for Creeslough victim Hugh Kelly.
Mr Kelly, 59, was the oldest person to die in tragedy.

Robert Garwe, 50, and Shauna Flanagan Garwe, five, also died in the tragedy.

A funeral service will be held for them tomorrow. Little Shauna, the youngest of the victims, had just started primary school.

She was found in her father’s arms, the family said.

The notice on RIP.ie reads: "The tragic deaths occurred in Creeslough of Robert Garwe and his daughter Shauna Flanagan-Garwe, Creeslough. 

"Deeply missed by a heartbroken Áine, Taona, Gabriel, Darren, Tessa, Alex, Conrad and their extended families and many friends.

"Strictly family time from 10pm and on the morning of the funeral.

James O'Flaherty, 48, Catherine O’Donnell, 39, and her 13-year-old son James Monaghan, 24-year-old Jessica Gallagher, 49-year-old Martin McGill, also lost their lives in the blast.
