The Inspector of Prisons and Places of Detention revisted Loughan House on 24 May, 2005. His Special Advisor Jim Woods returned on the 13 February, 2006. The purpose of the revisits was to follow up on points of note and recommendations made arising from the previous full inspection of the prison in May 2003 and to examine any significant changes in the meantime. It was not to inspect the whole regimes, facilities, services or management of the prison, and the revisit is not to be taken as a full inspection.
The Inspector's intention is to revisit within a year or two any prison or place of detention that has had a full inspection to establish if the findings or recommendations of the full inspection have been implemented.
