Belfast Firm

I have picked up the above photograph from 'Belfast Forum', under the topic, 'Every Black & White Photo tells a story'. The comment accompanying the photo is "The shop on the left was owned by Paddy Thompson. I knew him when he was a glazier in McIlhagga's on the Shankill Road. He was also a good footballer". The comment is signed with a pseudonim. The firm referred to must be the one still advertising as 'faircomcilhagga'. It would be interesting to know whether Paddy had any family links with the McIlhaggas.

PS: I have added a brief comment to the blog, 'Port Glasgow to Yarraville' which I published on 4th July 2009. It comes from a correspondent in Australia.
