Imelda Wickham is regarded as something of a living legend among the penal policy community in Ireland. A prison chaplain for twenty years and former National Coordinator of Prison Chaplains, she is a passionate advocate for a Restorative Justice System. Now she has written Unheard Voices: Reflections of a Prison Chaplain, which provides a brief human insight into life behind bars in one of our penal institutions. Wickham speaks with clarity and compassion about her time as a prison chaplain, her work with the families of those incarcerated and the bonds that she forged with the inmates in her care. She challenges us to both literally and metaphorically ‘pull down the walls’ in the design of our societal punishment system and argues for a restorative justice system, with support and rehabilitation built into the penalty.
