Yesterday, Officers C.O. Dave Walsh and W.T.O. Greg Flanagan from Arbour Hill Prison presented a fully rebuilt tandem bicycle to us here at the NCBI. The tandem was assembled from a donated frame and recycled bicycle parts and fully restored by prisoners as part of a rehabilitation and training programme located in Loughan House Prison.
The presentation was made to Joe McKenna of NCBI Foundation; ‘People with vision impairments often like to participate in our Cycle of Light and Trip to Tipp challenges and the availability of a bicycle such as this makes it possible for even more people to be included. We’d like to extend our thanks and congratulations to the staff and prisoners who produced such a wonderful result.’
