Brendan O'Carroll has paid a touching tribute to Aslan frontman Christy Dignam following his sad passing.

The iconic Irish musician passed away aged 63 on Tuesday following a long illness, as announced by his daughter Keira.

Tributes have been pouring in for Christy ever since, and now Brendan O'Carroll has offered his condolences.

The Mrs Brown's Boys creator also hails from Christy's hometown of Finglas in Dublin and the pair were good friends.

Christy also had a close bond with Rory Cowan, who previously starred in the BBC comedy.

"[It is] so sad," Brendan told RSVP Live after hearing the news of the Aslan star's death.

"We have lost a great performer and a good Finglas man.

"He has been fighting for many years, now he can rest.

"He's earned it."

Brendan's son Danny has also paid tribute to Christy.

Sharing a picture of Aslan accompanied by their bestselling hit Crazy World on Instagram, Danny wrote: "A sad day for Ireland. RIP Christy."

Former Mrs Brown's Boys star Rory Cowan shared kind words following his good friend's death.

Reposting a clip of Christy surprising Rory while he was on RTE show Keys To My Life, the Fair City actor wrote: "My heart is very heavy. My old pal Christy Dignam has died.

"God love him. We lost a fabulous Dubliner today.

"My deepest sympathies go out to Kiera and Kathryn and the rest of Christy’s family and his Aslan family."

Meanwhile, the Lord Mayor of Dublin Caroline Conroy has opened an online Book of Condolence for the citizens of Dublin to extend their sympathies to the family of Christy Dignam.

"On behalf of the citizens of Dublin I wish to express my deepest condolences to the family of Christy Dignam," she said.

"For many Dubliners Christy was the voice of their city. His memory will live on in Aslan’s music, which I have no doubt will continue to be enjoyed for many years to come. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.”

The Book of Condolence is available to sign
