There were a few hairdressers on the crumlin rd, but I think McGintys was the one down the rd fom Holy Cross, and on the same side.

Pajamo was there one down near Leopold St ???

There was a barber shop on the corner
of Butler St and Crumlin Road. The name
McGinty sounds familar. :)

Correct, there was one at Butler and Crumlin, directly opposite the steps to Holy Cross, and I am certain there was one close to Leopold St, I can picture a Barbers pole, you know the red and white spiral type.

I've just read your posting about McGinty Hairdresser, Crumlin Rd. Sorry some years later.

BUT:
I have a Memory Card for Elizabeth McGinty, 386 Crumlin Rd., who died on 22nd January 1968 aged 70 yrs.  It also has a photo on it.
My Mother was friendly with Mrs. McGinty.

I hope you read this some time and I can let you see the photo.

Hi Molly77, I am John McGinty's grandson, my mum was Elizabeth. I remember staying at Grandad's barbershop in Crumlin Rd and latterly sharing a room with him when he stayed with us in the UK. I would love to touchbase with you and share information.
