Former Irish cross country champion Keith Kelly (34) from Halpin's Terrace was just 200ft from the second bomb.

'It was just horrific. We were in a hotel at a meeting and it shook and when I got out I saw things that I never want to see again,' he said.

'It shook the building so hard that everyone went white. We thought it was a gas explosion.'
