In July of this year Estefany was held in Mountjoy Prison in solitary confinement for 12 days after she attempted to enter the country: this detention was held to be unlawful. Estefany describes for us what happened at the airport, how she was treated, and how she ended up in prison – it’s a visceral account of her experience. Dr Liam Thornton and journalist Luke Butterly provide context on the wider system as we consider the Garda role in this process.
