Irish Wise Guys

  • Dates: September 28, 2022
  • Time: 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
  • Price: Free
  • Overview

    The newly released book, The Irish Wise Guys, tells the story of America’s most notorious Irish American gangsters- the men who rose from poverty, brutally created criminal empires and made millions before more often than not dying violently. In different circumstances, these men could have been captains of industry, politicians or union leaders; instead, they chose a path of crime that turned them into some of the most wanted men in America.
    Join us for a talk with John Joe McGinley, author and podcast host (irishwiseguys.ie/podcasts) out of Glassagh, County Donegal. He will discuss the evolving role of Irish Americans gangs during the nativist era through prohibition and into the world of modern organized crime and its intersection with the labor union movement. The talk will be at 7pm on Zoom and will be posted on our Youtube
