A report by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture has found that conditions in several Irish prisons are extremely unsafe.
It reported that in Mountjoy, Limerick Prison and St Patrick’s in particular a high level of violence and intimidation between prisoners is the norm. It stated that the principal causes for this violence are a high level of drug use as well as a lack of purposeful activity for prisoners. The problems are only likely to get worse over the next few years as the number of drug gang members in prison increases.
