I remember a bakery between Bellveue st and Mountjoy st called Parks ,their Honeycomb loaf was to die for.  nella,
I give in you both ladies are quite right, I just had a senior moment.

another piece of info, a grand daughter of W.J.o'Hara, Kathleen Stubberfield had a shop on the Shankill opp Moscow St (in the old police station premises)

Yes there was one at Unity Walk facing on to Peter's Hill and after the troubles started it moved about 100 yards away into North Street next to Woolworths, where the Star bingo is now.  The manager was a lady from the Shankill. I think she was called Eadie.  She was a friend of my ma's

Wasn't there an O'Hara's on the Crumlin Road. My Gran used to send me out there for wheatan and sodas and of course diamonds for one of my uncles.  I think it was O'Hara's.
