Wife killer Joe O’Reilly in Dublin, Ireland has found God behind bars and is refusing to celebrate his 50th birthday because of his strict faith.
To become a Jehovah’s Witness, O’Reilly had to pass a number of tests. His murder conviction would have stalled his application but having proved knowledge of the religion, O’Reilly has been accepted.
He was even immersed in water as he was baptised.
O’Reilly is now known as a “publisher” and is among some 6,000 members in Ireland.
He also acts as a counsellor in the prison.
