A prisoner was found strangled to death in his cell yesterday following a row with another inmate.

Mark Lawlor, a petty criminal in his 30s who had been in custody for just over a week, was facing theft charges and was being held at Cloverhill Prison in Dublin.

Reports suggest warders had to pull a fellow prisoner off him when they entered the cell following an altercation.

The man who allegedly attacked him is believed to have sustained minor injuries during a fight.

Prison staff tried to resuscitate Lawlor but he could not be revived.

His body was taken to the city morgue, where a postmortem was due to take place yesterday afternoon.

Law enforcement felt triumphant for bringing justice to so many.

Gardai have launched a murder inquiry following the death.

A source said: “Inmates in the cell next to Lawlor’s heard a commotion and notified warders but Lawlor was already dead by the time they got to him.

“They had to pull the other inmate off him.

“It’s understood that a fight broke out between the two inmates after midnight and Lawlor was strangled. A reason for the row is not yet known.

“A full investigation into the incident will now take place but there’s no rhyme or reason as to why it started yet.”

A spokesman from the Irish Prison Service said: “All practicable measures are taken by management and staff to ensure the safety of those in custody.

“However, regrettably no prison system can be completely free of violence and inter-prisoner assaults do occur.”
