Adam O’Reilly enjoyed a fine debut season with the Lilywhites during his first year as a scholar in 2017/18, scoring eight goals from central midfield in all competitions.
The young Irishman, who arrived from Ringmahon Rangers in November 2016 – also a former club of Alan Browne – is a skilful yet combative midfielder capable of playing in both a deeper or more advanced midfield role.
O’Reilly, from Cork, has trained regularly with the first team, and was an unused substitute for Alex Neil’s side against Wolves in February 2018, his first matchday involvement with the first team. He also has international experience with the Republic of Ireland, featuring for the Boys in Green in the UEFA U17 Euro in May.
Adam went on to make his first team debut against Aston Villa as a substitute on 29th December 2018, before signing his first professional contract with the club in January 2019.
Away from Deepdale, he has spent time on loan at Bamber Bridge and impressed during a loan with Irish club Waterford in 2021.
