Irish Daily Mail - - News -

A MAN­HUNT has been launched for a pris­oner who es­caped from a court­house yes­ter­day. The in­mate, who can­not be iden­ti­fied for le­gal rea­sons, es­caped from cus­tody in Clon­dalkin in west Dublin while he was be­ing trans­ported to the nearby Wheat­field Prison.

The Ir­ish Prison Ser­vice im­me­di­ately in­formed An Garda Síochána and searches were launched straight away.

A spokesman for the Ir­ish Prison Ser­vice con­firmed the es­cape last night.

A spokesman for An Garda Síochána said that it would not be is­su­ing a state­ment on the in­ci­dent, adding that ap­peals are not is­sued in re­la­tion to peo­ple who are un­law­fully at large.
