Wife-killer Lillis gets 'premier' single cell

PRISON management have given wife-killer Eamonn Lillis, right, a single cell.

A prison source said the move had led to a degree of "disquiet" in Dublin's Wheatfield jail among both staff and fellow prisoners.

"He was put on the 6F landing, which is considered to be the premier landing because of its drug-free status," he said.

The decision by senior management to give Lillis (52) his own cell surprised many staff as it goes against the usual procedure of placing new inmates in shared rooms until a single one becomes available. Management will today assign Lillis his job at the prison, with potential roles there varying from kitchen staff to work in the laundry or metal room.
