A piece from the 2006 archive. Reoffending and rehabilitation are words that are often used when talking about prisoners and the prison system in Ireland today.  Miriam Gormally met up with John Lonergan, the Governor of Mountjoy Prison, who talked about rehabilitation and how poverty, disadvantage and stigmatisation affect it.  John explains why we need to be proactive in crime prevention and how providing better facilities, housing and education in poorer areas will achieve this.
