Prisons Memory Archive | Unseen Women

Film testimonies from Armagh prison.

22 October 2012 – 15 November 2012

The Prisons Memory Archive holds interviews with people who were connected to the Maze and Long Kesh Prisons and Armagh Gaol during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Participants, who were recorded onsite, include prison staff, prisoners, chaplains, probation officers, visitors and teachers. The exhibition at Illuminations, ‘Unseen Women’, is specially curated for the space by Cahal McLaughlin and Jolene Mairs and features the testimony of six women recounting their experiences inside the walls of Armagh gaol.

Watch the films on show at Illuminations here.
