McGarry's leading role in visit to Maghaberry prison

Editor's Viewpoint

The well-known entertainer, actor and comedian Tim McGarry paid a welcome visit to Maghaberry Prison where he met the governor, David Kennedy.

During the visit some prisoners performed a short sketch from the BBC television sitcom Give My Head Peace which Mr McGarry co-wrote. This must have been a particular challenge in the presence of the co-author.

Mr McGarry also took the opportunity to meet prison staff, healthcare workers and Quakers who support vulnerable prisoners.

It is good to see a high-profile figure like Tim so generously giving of his time and talent to others in this way.
