Irish prison inspectors have described conditions for male inmates at Mountjoy Prison as"shocking" and could be considered"degrading" with mattresses on the floor pushed up against toilets in some cells.
The inspectors were"shocked to find that a significant number of people were being obliged to sleep on mattresses on the floors of cells designed for single occupancy". Chief Inspector of Prisons Mark Kelly said"these conditions of detention could be considered degrading". The Chief Inspector wrote to then Minister for Justice Simon Harris to express the need for urgent action.
