For those with criminal records, education holds the key to a brighter future. Unlocking Potential is an ongoing project which aims to reduce barriers to third-level education for those with criminal records. To tell us more about this project Pat was joined on the show by Paula Kearney Maynooth University master’s student who felt anxious about applying for university due to her criminal record and Dr. Ciara Bracken-Roche  Assistant Professor of Criminology Maynooth University.
