This is what a cell in Mountjoy Prison looks like

Have a look inside.

WE HAVE BEEN taking a look inside the walls of Mountjoy Prison over the past week, speaking to prison officers about their role in the institution.

TheJournal.ie was also given a quick look inside a prisoner’s cell, with their permission.

This is a standard cell which any class of prisoner could be placed in.

It consists of a small desk and chair, a bed, heating, a simple TV, a noticeboard, and in-cell sanitation – ‘slopping out’ came to an end in Mountjoy in 2013.

Take a look at the video above for a quick tour.
