Sons of Anarchy's Alan O'Neill dead at 47

Irish actor Alan O'Neill, known for his role as Hugh on Sons of Anarchy, has died at age 47.

He was found dead at an apartment in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, according to TMZ.

Alan shot to fame as Hugh in season six and seven of the American drama series Sons of Anarchy and also appeared in a variety of shows.

No foul play is suspected in his death, with reports suggesting he had suffered health problems.

In addition to his "Sons of Anarchy" role, O'Neill played Keith McGrath on the TV series "Fair City".

The Irish actor is being commemorated by friends and fans who followed his career.

United States actress Kristen Renton, who played Ima Tite, said: "RIP sir... my you find peace now".

His co-stars paid tribute on Twitter. "So very sorry to hear of your passing", she said. "My thoughts are with his partner, family and children at this time".

"It's with sadness I confirm the passing of Alan O'Neill, a brilliant amusing and kind human being", his agent Annette Walsh writes in a statement.

In Kurt Sutter's beloved drama about the outlaw motorcycle gang, O'Neill's character was a former member of the True IRA and he made his debut during the sixth season.

"Always enjoyed working with him, rest in peace old pal".
