Public meeting in Castlerea tonight over plans to develop Harristown House as an open prison

Roscommon Herald — Public to air their views on prison plans - Roscommon Herald
Castlerea for many years campaigned to have a prison opened to benefit the locality-it got what it wanted. It now appears that the locals, and some councillorsand TD's , do not want certain prisoners to be held there. Do the good folk of port laoise or clondalkin have a veto on who may be held in their local facility. Will Ming, dinny naughton or pascal fitzmaurice be deciding in future who can or cannot stay in the state prison?
