CJI personnel meet representatives of the Irish Prison Service and Irish Prisons’ Inspectorate

27/04/2009
Dr Michael Maguire and Tom McGonigle have attended a meeting with Brian Purcell, Director General of the Irish Prison Service at its headquarters in Longford.  The meeting also enabled them to view the conditions and facilities at Wheatfield prison in west Dublin.  As part of the two-day visit, they also met with Judge Michael Reilly, head of the Irish Prisons Inspectorate in Dublin. The meetings were organised as part of the CJI’s on-going programme of engagement with criminal justice bodies, which assist in increasing understanding and awareness of practice in other jurisdictions within the Inspection Team.
