Hugh
I apologize I saw your post and thought that I had answered
I am no sure is the answer but I would be interested in talking to her . Have you done any Genelogy on your side
Sit down for a moment .   My grandfather's mother was Rose Anne Mc Alister .   Maybe we should investigate but can,t find her after his birth.  She had several sisters and a brother . Can we talk to the woman who contacted you   Where are all  the barbers?

Sweeney,

John Turley cut my hair for a few years when he had a shop near the co-op on York St.  I needed a haircut and was walking from the rail station on my way into town.     Does the bloke called Frankie still own the executive ?
He went to the same school as you and is about the same age.
I can remember the story in the newspapers when one of Laurel & Hardie , who were performing in Belfast, went to a barbers near the Midland Hotel and seeming he had a packed shop in stitches .   Only one person had a haircut. :D
Where is John Turley's sons place. ....if I were Johnmac I would sue the barber who cut his hair. ??? ::)

John Turley was my uncle. He had three shops, one in Berry street, one in York Street and one in Dundalk. His son Jim owns Harvey Rose Master Barbers. Google it and you'll find him on Facebook page

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

I never had my hair cut in John Turley’s.... as Sam says ... it was my sister.

Me I was strictly Eddie Allen’s at the top of Dock St.   mainly, it was either Seamus or Tommy who cut my hair. Seamus then opened his own place on the Falls Rd just up from the Falls Baths on the opposite side of the Rd, near the pedestrian crossing. However I do remember needing a quick haircut and thought i’d Just nip into Geordie Leonard’s in Garmoyle St.  Geordie and the family were lovely people but once in his chair was enough 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤫🤫🤫🤫

You are also correct Sam with the educational establishment.... 65 to 71

I knew it??   It's your spelling /( joke).   I read your posts on the school site. :)
Jim Hanna started around Whitla Sr in a barbers someplace.  I read his humorous article about cutting Laurel & Hardies hair at the Midland hotel.
