Hynds bar Mcgurk McGirr
« on: May 28, 2018, 03:24:32 PM »
OK My grandad Terence McGirr worked in Hynds bar aprox 1930 or so he married a Mary c McGurk but no marriage records or birth  .can I find Mary was apparently born 1924 .. records of Mary McGurk Beechmount don't match .. so if anyone has history on the bar and how you'd work  there it would be great .. someone must know its all very odd .. no marriage record no birth records  ???

Hi Scarybiscuit - what an unusual sign in name!  Sorry I cant help you with your grandparents- but where in Belfast was the bar you  mentioned? :)

There was a Hynes bar on the corner of Broadway and the Falls road. It is now called the Red Devil.

Hi Parkie, I only know it because my dad used to drink in it years ago when Paddy Hynes owed it. What info are you interested in I could ask a cousin of mine what he remembers of it
