Having first opened the doors back in 1984, it's unlikely that Mick O'Brien of Snip-It Barbershop on Peter Street will ever have seen anything like the demand coming at him and his staff as they re-open this week after three months.

Whether it's correcting botched home cuts or taming wild manes grown over the course of lockdown, Mick, his two sons, Alan and Sean, and his other barber Dahl will certainly have their work cut out for them over the coming weeks.

While delighted to be re-opening, Mick and his team did have to put a whole host of measures in place to comply with restrictions. Not least in these is the elimination of walk-in business, as anybody looking for a trim will now have to book an appointment online through the shop's website.
