Barney Hughes was a prod, he was a friend of  the Rev Henry Cooke ( The Black Man statue is of Rev Cooke) Barney married a Presbyterian and Rev Henry Cooke performed the ceremoney.

I remember my granny dragging my into O'Haras.  She always bought Paris Buns with chocolate, a Milk Loaf (it was round) and Custard Buns. 

I loved the custard buns and have never found any as good since O'Haras closed.

Their sausage rolls were pretty good too!!!

There you go Dickie.  ED25 also remembers the Milk Loaf. ... :)

Yes I also remember the loaf "ribbed". My late Mum for some reason called it a lodger loaf.

Floral, we also called it a Lodgers Loaf.  With the ribs in it, it was easier to cut all the rounds the same size. ;)

I worked in O'Hara's for years when they were in Cambrai St and those milk loaves were a nightmare to work with. There small plain loaf was lovely though we called it a batch loaf. They ended up with around 30 shops in Belfast.

Hi all, the last time i was home i wondered what happened to O'Harra's,the big boys don't make anything as good as the small Independent family run shops(at least you knew what you were eating) & enjoyed everything you bought !
Ask not of what your country can do for you, Ask what you can do for your country !
