The Director General of the Irish Prison Service Caron McCaffrey said this operation was “a very significant result for Mountjoy Prison and our Operational Support Group in their efforts to prevent dangerous contraband from entering the prison”. “Given the scale of the contraband seized it is highly possible that these drugs, if they had made their way into the prison population, could have had a devastating impact on the prison population including the potential for the loss of life by overdose”.
The Director General commended both Mountjoy Prison and the Operational Support Group for the successful operation.
