I think they would be interesting to hear from. It would also be good to get insight from them on people preparing for a test and hopefully squash the myths of ''quotas''.

We did have a prison officer on before - still one of our most popular AMAs! It's from 2014, you can read it here.

Not doing an AMA on it mind but I've recommended someone to Boards.ie/Niamh who's already on Boards.

What I will say is if you're asked to keep your wedges/high heels/stilettos on (no matter how much pain they're causing you at the end of a night out;consider bringing ballet shoes or flats in handbag and exchanging them but not carrying shoes around out of your bag) it's pretty much for same reason chippers/restaurants/takeaways don't allow pint glasses/bottles to be brought onto a premises.

I blame a certain section of the media and now online media too; the hype they're creating him is ridiculous.

I'm no fan of his or what he done but he's complying with any terms of his release (he's not on sex offenders register as it pre-dated his crime; that's not his fault) and hasn't reoffended per se (assaults have occurred as a result of alcohol fuelled goading but whether this was done by someone who knew of his past and wanted to warn others I don't know).

But there's loads of others out there who've offended as bad and worse who're rarely named; sometimes it's down to their defendants in terms of age.

But there are plenty named who've done as bad as him such as Ml. Bambrick for example.

I'd love to speak to someone who works with someone like either of those named; I couldn't work with them after what they've done.

Would also like to know how they've managed to convince an employer to hire 'em; a low risk assessment upon leaving jail perhaps?

We've got people walking round with murder convictions, convictions for rape, sexual assault, incest, manslaughter etc. who're beyond depraved and beyond redemption (Cratloe Woods rape case from 00s; those involved're in relationships.......I scratch my head at that scenario) yet they seem to be able rebuild their lives and work in the community.

It's the morals of those hiring 'em I'd've an issue with too.

As for an AMA I'd love one with either one of our three "Predator Hunter" groups as while what they're doing is, ostensibly noble (despite nobody asking them to do it and them ignoring the fact that vast majority of sexual offences in Ireland which involve grooming or not involve people known to each other be it family members, sports coaches etc.), our laws don't cover grooming a fake decoy online.

When I watch the videos of "Louise" and her "Security" (yobs with knuckle draggers; not licenced by PSA) they don't cover themselves in glory; it's like watching Jeremy Kyle on TV3.

But I'd also like an AMA with someone who's been "stung" by these hunter groups.
Yes they've been arrested but since grooming a decoy's not a crime (but it is morally repulsive to me), once arrested (and given the mob that show up it's for their own safety generally and to prevent a public order offence occurring since these hunter groups're vigilantes and can't control anything incl. who gets the hunters on camera, something they really don't like....) what happens or happened next?

Like given many in their locality've seen the stings what reception do they receive after released from custody.

Do they get the sack from where they've been working or, if volunteering is that gone too; bear in mind they may have no charges pressed so no convictions but yet what they've said to a decoy who is, as far as they were aware, a real child, I'd find it difficult to retain such a person on my payroll.

And also along with this then their kit and kin; how do they react?

So an AMA with individuals; I get of course that predator hunter groups're vigilantes so it'd be difficult to verify 'em.

I've added them to the list but we did have an AMA with a heart and lung transplant recipient before which you can read here.
