On Friday 22nd July 2022, Cork Prison saw the return of the annual multi justice agency children’s summer sports and activity camp.
A total of over 40 boys and girls were involved in various sports and physical activities throughout the day that included staff from Cork Prison. This initiative led by The Irish Prison Service continues to go from strength to strength in collaboration with The Probation Service, IASIO, Cork ETB and the Cork Sports Partnership and is supported by many local and national sporting organisations.
Governor Peter O’ Brien commented that it was great to see this initiative return to the community again and thanked all the staff and volunteers in attendance for making the day so engaging and enjoyable for all the kids, he also made a donation on behalf of Cork Prison to Catriona Twomey Coordinator with Cork Penny Dinners.
The feedback was very positive and discussions with stakeholders are already underway with planning next year’s summer camp.
