Cell keys and a phonebox from the Maze prison for sale

Breaking News

The keys to the H-block cells of Northern Ireland's most notorious prison, the Maze, were up for auction in Dublin on Friday.

The prison housed both republican and loyalist prisoners during the Northern Ireland Troubles.

It was known as Long Kesh and was home to the famous H-Blocks where ten men died in the 1981 republican hunger strikes where they fought with the Government to be recognised as political prisoners.

The jail was closed in 2000 after the early release of inmates following the Good Friday Agreement.
