I must be having a bad day, canít believe that I did not check my 1969 Street Directory... will check the strength of my cider 🤣🍺

Anyway, here you go for George Blake, 28 Liffey St Belfast, a Chimney Sweep.

I suspect that this George was the one in the newspaper report for stealing the milk in 1951. I presume that this George is actually your Grandfather

The George Blake, Labourer who appears in the 1943, 1951 & 1960 is your Great Grandfather living at 4 Bedeque St.

Looks a possibility that George purchased 28 Liffey St in 1968
And as we see from the 1969 Directory he has his feet under the kitchen table
