Someone could be murdered in an Irish jail due to overcrowding, according to the Prison Officers Association.

They're raising the issue at their annual conference, which is continuing in Sligo today.

There are over 4,000 inmates behind bars now - compared to less than 3,800 this time last year.

It's due to more court activity after the Covid pandemic, but POA general secretary, John Clinton, says it could lead to violence.
