Donegal street is correct, if I remember, the bar counter was very long.

Houl the results fellas :)
 
 I was thinking Gladstone instead of McGlades :(
I googled it and seemingly there was a Gladstone bar.   Somewhere in Divis Street, Belfast

The Viking was a great bar in church lane , it had a small bar down stairs and a lounge up stairs if im correct, As a long haired 17 yr old in 72 i went there most Saturdays, There was a small group of young lads and a similar group of young girls , thing was we all loved the same music like Led Zepplin, Deep Purple, Free, Black Sabbath etc etc.   I spent manys a happy time in the Viking the troubles never stopped us from going there despite the huge risks of no warning bombs in those days.
  We also drank in the Roost which was just up the street a bit not sure if its still there , It was another super pub for young ones in the 70,s great happy memories wish id a time machine lol, Regards ken
