Two Limerick prison wardens get a nasty beating

The leader reports tonight on a savage beating that took place in the facility Thursday last involving an inmate and two guards.

A male prisoner originally form Ballynanty, is thought to have savagely attacked two guards after they caught him using a mobile phone in his cell. He apparently used a deck scrub, a very hard brush for cleaning heavily soiled areas, to pummel the two. Fortunately more wardens came to their aid and restrained the man. But the damage had been done.

The two guards injuries were described as nasty and included an eye socket injury and a fracture to the face. They were both taken to the Mid Western Regional Hospital for treatment.

The violent prisoner was only at the prison three weeks after he was sent back from the UK.

The leader also reports that prison officials find 4 or 5 mobiles every week in cells... Good to know isn’t it?
