Hope it's OK to post here. Just wondering if anyone can tell me what it is like in Maghabery these days?

I am from the South and did not turn up for my trial and so am expecting to go on remand and told I would probably go here. I just need to get this sorted out now and get on with my life before things get worse.

Would someone from the South  have a tougher time here. Just looking for an idea of what to expect if anybody can help.

It's Top of the Pops now. The most improved Prison in the U.K., nay the World. A clean bill of health and a venerable holiday camp these days, by all accounts. :)

I'd prefer it if our pensioners were made sure that they got three meals a day and free T.V. access. Plus someone was sent around to make sure of it. Say a home help service. Now that would be novel in this day and age.

Just some of the new changes for Maghaberry during its £54m renovation.

➢ Use of colours and different types of material to help create a sense of individual space and soften security critical features;


➢  the building has open, bright areas, wide landings, different zones with clear distinction between learning, health and leisure activity, large and small communal areas;


➢  Research shows access to the land has been shown to increase self-efficacy and self-worth and to decrease anxiety and importantly to reduce recidivism rates.  Davis House provides prisoners with a choice of external recreational and horticulture areas with views to the countryside;


➢  Cell design provides an element of control for occupants.  As research shows the absence of control can increase stress, prisoners in Davis House wil
➢  Access to personal in cell computers to book appointments etc. will create personal independence and help redirect officers’ work to engagement and rehabilitation. 




It is shameful that £54m could be found to make criminal prison life easy.
 Yet our old people live in fear and poverty, the fear probably caused by some of Maghaberry inmates.
 More shameful that WE let them get away with it. >:D
We don't have to agree on anything to be kind to one another.

Liz I was completely unaware of this £54M being spent on this place.

Its absolutely sickening for the reasons you have given.

Thank you for posting this information.

It's an absolute disgrace!!!...anyone that has done a tour of Crumlin Rd jail would agree that that is the type of prison that should be provided for those criminals, not the holiday camp that Maghaberry has become, they are put in jail to be punished for their evil crimes, not to have a life of Riley, and if they see the error of their ways when in there well and good, if not tough, stick them back in again and again !!!
