Kelly temporary release is ‘normal practice’ – Irish Prison Service

The Irish Prison Service says Shaun Kelly, like all prisoners, is entitled to temporary release during the final twelve months of his sentence.

The Irish Prison Service says the temporary release of one of Inishowen’s most high-profile prisoners is “entirely in line with standard practice” ahead of his release at the end of this year.

Shaun Kelly, the driver that admitted killing eight people in a collision near Clonmany in July 2010, was permitted to return home for a first overnight stay earlier this month.

National newspaper coverage showed Kelly working on a farm in Tooban with two friends. He had been home for a short stay from Loughan House, the open prison in Cavan where he is serving out the remainder of his sentence.
