GARDAI ARE INVESTIGATING allegations by a prisoner that he was repeatedly raped at the Midlands Prison.

An allegation of sexual assault was reported to prison officers recently alleging that the inmate was repeatedly raped by up to six men.

The Irish Daily Star reported this morning that the prisoner was attacked multiple times.

A spokesman for the Irish Prison Service confirmed to TheJournal.ie that both it and gardaí are investigating the allegations.

The man has since given a statement to gardaí where he described, in detail, how he was raped.

He said that the rape continued for a long time and that the attackers wore condoms during the act.

The incident happened at the section of the prison which houses people who have been convicted of very serious sexual crimes.

The inmate has been removed from that wing and has been receiving medical and psychological counselling.
