O'Hara's Pub - 45 Snithfield
« Reply #618 on: January 22, 2018, 10:45:20 AM »
Hi,

I have found that a relative (Michael Dougan) used to have a pub in Smithfield (back in 1870's), and I have traced this through the Belfast Directories, and it went from Dougan to McGlade to Dempsey to O'Hara's in the 1960 directory

Does anyone know if it still exists and if so what it is today, or was it destroyed as part of the Castlecourt Development?

Maddens pub seems to be 76 Smithfield, is that the same Maddens that exists today?
