Radharc examines the public reluctance to take a hard look at Irish prisons. All that most people want is to see the offender put behind bars. Key questions are left unanswered: ‘What can prisons achieve?’, What are they achieving at present?’, Who is responsible for the shortcomings in our prisons?, ‘Should the church be involved?’ “Throw Away the Key” puts these points to people currently involved with the Irish prison system.
