Episode notes

In Chapter 2: We hear from Anto, Senan, Paul, Marty, Dylan and Stretch. Families and fatherhood is the focus of the conversations with Lynn Ruane. For all of the men, the love for and from their families is a driving force for them and gets them through their time spent in prison. Lynn and the men reflect on how prison is a community and family affair, affecting not only the person serving the sentence but the household missing a loved one. All the music you hear in this series is performed by students in the Wheatfield Prison Education Centre.
