IB Dáltaí Visit Midlands Prison
IB dáltaí visited the Midlands Prison in Portlaoise over two days. It was a hugely informative and enjoyable experience as they were led by the governor of the prison through each part of the prison, including the cells, corridors, school, exercise facilities, visitors’ rooms and the control centre. Students also observed prison guards in riot training and had the opportunity to try on the helmets and hold the shields. It was a fascinating insight into life in Ireland’s biggest prison.
