Mr. Liam Dowling is Governor of Arbour Hill Prison in Dublin Ireland, a closed medium security prison for adult males with a profile largely made up of long term sentenced prisoners.
During his visit to Western Australia, Mr Dowling, accompanied by his wife Ann, will be presenting a Travel Box to the City of Subiaco in appreciation of the council’s support of ‘An Gorta Mór’ Famine Memorial in Market Square in Subiaco.
The box is one of several that have been made by Irish prisoners and which have been placed throughout Ireland, the US and Australia as reminders of the desperate plight of so many in the dark years during and after the famine.
