The Prisoners’ Rights Organisation was founded in the early 1970s, emerging from a Prisoners’ Union set up in Portlaoise prison. It published Jail Journal, written largely by prisoners and ex-prisoners. It was extant until the mid-1980s.

For more information, the WSM website has an article on the Prisoners’ Rights Organisation (archived link) .
