I am informed by the Irish Prison Service that under the Irish Prison Service National Flow Plan, Arbour Hill is designated for use as a prison for sex offenders. The Prison Estate operates in a dynamic operational environment and I understand that the National Flow Plan is subject to ongoing review and amendment, in line with operational needs.

However, I am advised by the Irish Prison Service that there are currently no plans to alter the current use of the prison.

The following table, as conveyed to me by the Irish Prison Service, is a breakdown of the prison population in Arbour Hill by years served, correct as at 16/12/19:

Years Served to Date Total
< 1 Yr 5
1 to < 2 Yrs 13
2 to < 3 Yrs 23
3 to < 4 Yrs 24
4 to < 5 Yrs 14
5 to < 6 Yrs 11
6 to < 7 Yrs 5
7 to < 8 Yrs 1
8 to < 9 Yrs 3
9 to < 10 Yrs 4
10 to < 15 Yrs 10
15 + Yrs 20
