The Maze Prison

The Maze Prison

By Tom Murtagh



The Maze Prison shows how an establishment built to hold those involved in terrorism, atrocities, murder and allied crimes during The Troubles became a pawn in the partisan conflict that was Northern Ireland. There followed a breakdown of norms, values and control as the last of these shifted from prison Governors to Ministers-of-State, outside officials and even prisoners. This led to the (often random) killing of prison officers and a mass of allegations, denials and obfuscations, as Prison Rules came into conflict with claims to be treated as prisoners-of-war or be given Special Category status.
