It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Alan O’Neill has passed away at the age of 47 years old.
Reports indicate that O’Neill’s body was discovered by his girlfriend in the hallway of her apartment Wednesday night. TMZ note that O’Neill had a history of heart problems and was a heavy smoker and also had a history of alcohol and drug abuse.
No foul play is suspected and an autopsy will be completed soon to determine the cause of death.
O’Neil played Hugh a member of the True IRA in the sixth and seventh seasons of Sons of Anarchy; he also appeared in Inspector George Gently, Undercovers, Fair City, Urge, and was due to appear in the movie Charlie Lives: The Movie.
