I’m hoping to put more detail on to my article for the Central Bar. I have all the early history all charted, but would like to add more from 1969 onwards when the bar at 220 Glasgow Road became Fallon’s Bar.
I know John was the owner and all about the 1976 fire and a few break ins, but would like to add more about the social history of it all. i.e who frequented the place? What was it like inside? Anybody got any stories, who worked there during the 1970s? I have it closing in 1978, but given this snowy winter 1978 scene, I suspect it may have been into 1979. Can anybody firm that up?
