Alan O'Neill Dead: 'Sons of Anarchy' Actor Dies at 47


Actor Timothy V. Murphy wrote: "My good friend Alan O'Neill died today...we worked together on The Sons Of Anarchy...my condolences to his family".

O'Neill was best known in the USA for his role in Sons of Anarchy, though he was known in Ireland as a star of the Fair City soap opera from 2006 to 2012, reports the Irish Times.

The late actor's body was found in the hallway of his girlfriend's Los Angeles apartment on Wednesday night, law enforcement sources told TMZ on Thursday. "He's also got a history of alcohol and drug abuse", TMZ reports. He was also apparently struggling with a drinking problem.

Sons of Anarchy debuted in 2008, before eventually concluding in 2014 after 92 episodes.
