In November 2023, the Journal's Noteworthy initiative reported on their investigation of prison visits. IPRT Executive Director, Saoirse Brady, comments in the piece, with information included from our Children and Families Project Coordinator, Ashling Tobin.
Some key points from the investigation:
Read part one of the investigation: ‘A long way from normal’: Families say visits to prison still restricted post-pandemic
Read part two of the investigation: ‘Children don’t deserve this’: Visiting an imprisoned parent is ‘traumatising’.
