    Default McAuley and Walsh Helped Keep Order In Castlerea

    The Roscommon Herald 11 Aug edition is running a front page story of how the release of Kevin Walsh and Pearse McAuley may raise security concerns at Castlerea prison. According to the paper the two former IRA inmates helped prison officers keep order in the jail that is severly understaffed. Now there are worries that with the prison filled to capacity the prison staff will find it very difficult to keep all inmates in check.
    I can't find the article on the papers' website so I don't have a link.

    You mean there is no space for the FG/LP/FF/PD ministers who, not only covered up mass murder & lied to the relatives of the victims, but actively wasted taxpayers' € in collaborating with them. Aw shucks; there was silly me thinking that they were finally about to do some time for their crimes against innocent Irish people.

    That seems pretty worrying considering the prison is already "low security". If it's true that two inmates had to help keep order then the public and prison staff could be put at risk.

    It's low(medium) security for a reason. Most of the prisoners aren't going to cause trouble unless they're stupid. Compared to real prisons, the place is a cushy number.

    Ah - good to see the Roscommon Herald fall for the spoofing unit of the IPOA

    Also WTF did the journalist mean by this passage:

    It is understood that even prison officers had to knock on the door of the IRA prisoners’ house and they would only communicate with sexual offenders when they received a written request.

    You mean they were Free State Collaborators? Traitors to both sides then.
