Magill Training Centre
The demolition of the Centre, which closed in 2012, is expected to take several months with major works scheduled to be completed in April this year. The process begins with the removal of asbestos before the demolition of the buildings starts. After the demolition the area will be sold as residential land. There have been institutions for children on the Magill site since the opening of the original Magill Industrial School in 1869.
