With the election of the Fine Gael–Labour Government in 2011, a commitment was made to reduce the prison population and to alleviate overcrowding, primarily through non-custodial options for non-violent and less serious crimes (Department of the Taoiseach, 2011). A commitment was also given to provide in-cell sanitation and, resource permitting, upgrade prison facilities (Ibid.).

In April 2012 the Irish Prison Service (IPS) released its Three Year Strategic Plan 2012–2015 that aimed to improve the Irish prisons system across six key strategic actions: prisoner numbers; prisoner progression; prisoner programmes; management and staffing; the prison estate, and legislative consolidation (2012a). In June 2012 the IPS published a One Year Implementation Plan that set out short-term objectives under the same six strategic actions (2012b). This report examines each of these objectives, covering the period from June 2012 to May 2013.
