Brighton's Under-23s coach Simon Rusk told the club's official website: 'We're pleased to secure the services of Warren after he impressed during a couple of training sessions before Christmas.

'He's had some good experience playing in Ireland's Premier Division last season and he'll certainly add to the competition we already have in central defence.

'We're delighted to welcome him to the club and are keen to contribute towards his continued development as a footballer.'

O'Hora, Brighton's first signing of the transfer widow, came through the academy system at Bohemians and played 11 times for their first team.

He has also represented his country at youth level, most recently playing for Ireland's Under-19s in their European Championship qualifier against Cyprus in October.
