Social deprivation, punishment and the Irish Prison Service with the former Governor of Mountjoy Prison John Lonergan. Episode #005


John Lonergan is the former Governor of Mountjoy Prison and worked in the Irish prison service for 42 years before his retirement in 2010. This podcast discusses crime, social and economic deprivation, addiction, education (or lack thereof), those impressionable teenage years and how just one bad decision can mean a prison sentence. Is our current prison system fit-for purpose and is punishment the answer?
