Alliance Party Leader, Sean Neeson has expressed his deep sorrow at the death of Constable O’Reilly, and has extended his sympathy to the family.
Mr Nesson said:
“Constable O’Reilly is a victim of the poison of naked sectarianism which flaunts itself daily on the streets of Portadown.
“I plead to all those involved in the conflict there to get round the table and to sort out their difficulties.
“Otherwise I fear that further sorrow will be inflicted on other innocent families.”
