A convicted drug dealer has escaped from an open prison in Co Cavan.
The Dubliner, who is in his fifites, absconded from Loughan House earlier this week.
He has been behind bars for over ten years on drug and firearm offences.
He’s due to complete his sentence in around three years time.
He had been serving his time recently in Loughan House in Cavan which is an open prison.
However it’s understood he faced being transferred to a closed prison for breaching prison rules.
The Irish Prison Service has confirmed a prisoner absconded the facility on Monday and says the gardai have been notified.
