The latest govt files on a range of issues were recently released by the British govt. strangely ether they had no file on the Kincorra home scandal or if they had a file It has not been released. That seems rather odd given that the story was so massive in NI terms. The extracts below are from a tweet by Tommy McKernan who was referring to a Newsletter article. Rather odd stuff.
@Tommymckearney: This was possibly the biggest story relating to 6-Cos in 1982. Yet no official records released. Sort of spooky. Kincora file conspicously absent from government records - Headlines - Belfast Newsletter
AMONG the hundreds of files from 1982 released at the Public Record Office in Belfast, there is no file on the Kincora scandal.
The serial abuse of boys at the home for orphans had emerged publicly in 1980 and the most notorious abuser, William McGrath, was jailed in December 1981.
