On Monday next barbers and hairdressers can re-open to customers under the third phase of the lifting of the national Covid 19 restrictions.
John Kelly located on Castle Street in Castlebar is a fourth generation barber and his extensive barber and men’s grooming shops will be among the many facilities that will re-open.
He is busy getting ready for the date. John is a founding member of the newly formed Barber's Association of Ireland.
He has been telling Midwest News today about the significant adaptations that have had to be made to ensure such facilities meet stringent health and safety regulations.
