PRESS RELEASE : Gavin Robinson welcomes announcement of Kincora demolition [November 2022]

The press release issued by the DUP on 22 November 2022.

East Belfast MP has welcomed that commencement of demolition on the former Kincora Boys Home is to commence tomorrow (Wednesday).

He said, “Kincora and the horrors that occurred within have stained our local community for decades. Victims see the building as a visual reminder of their experience, often on a daily basis.

I have worked over many years to press for demolition of this site and challenged the Council when they sought to retain this memorial to misery. I am thankful that finally, it will be razed to the ground.”
