THE BALDY BARBER
Called into Mick Moriarty, probably better known as the Baldy Barber, in Blackpool today. Shop was busy but I enjoyed the expert haircut and the chat with Mick, who has been operating there for decades.
He has a loyal customer base and told me he has "loads of repeats". I am not surprised: he keeps his standards up and his prices down. His Christmas wish is that the Government will cut the VAT rate in next week's budget. It is possible and if it happens Mick will drop his prices.
Established in 1937.
Moriarty's barbershop was founded in 1937 on what was then the business hub of the city, Merchant's quay.Peter Moriarty worked here employing his brother Mike and another full time barber. When of age his son Michael, now known as 'The Baldy Barber', learned and honed his trade here.
In 1960 , Peter opened a shop in the suburb of Blackpool where the young Michael ran and built up the business we know today.
Now the Baldy Barber, has become a Cork Legend in his own right.
Our first class, friendly service and over 77 years combined experience in the shop means that customers can expect only the best.
The Baldy Barber's has always been at the cutting edge of trends while retaining the traditions of the old school barbershop.
