A PLACE where people used to get ‘half cut’ could soon be a place for people to get a haircut, with an application made to Laois County Council to change a public house in Portarlington to a new hair salon.

A PLACE where people used to get ‘half cut’ could soon be a place for people to get a haircut, with an application made to Laois County Council to change a public house in Portarlington to a new hair salon.

Mr Ian Phelan, trading as Jujo Ltd, County Meath, has applied to convert Finlay’s Bar on the town’s Main Street into a hair salon, along with all associated site works.

Permission has also been sought to install new signs on the existing shop front, with submitted plans revealing the name of the new business to be The Hair Gallery.

Mr Eddie Finlay, the owner of Finlay’s Bar, has provided a letter to the council giving permission for Mr Phelan to change the use of the premises to a hair salon.

If approved, the new hair salon will employee five staff members, with the hours of business listed as Tuesday to Wednesday from 9am to 6pm, Thursday 9am to 9pm, and Friday and Saturday 9am to 6pm. The salon will close on Mondays, as is the practice with hairdressers.

A decision is now due from Laois County Council by July 9.
