The Irish Mob is the oldest organized crime group in the United States, in existence since the early 19th century. Originating in Irish American street gangs of the 19th century—depicted in Herbert Asbury’s 1928 book The Gangs of New York—the Irish Mob has appeared in most major U.S. cities, including Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago. The Irish Mob also has a strong presence in Ireland; however, unlike in the United States, the group has only been present in Ireland from the 1960s and onwards. Predominantly active in Dublin and Limerick, the group most often works under crime families focusing on the drug trade. During the 1960s, the majority of crime in Dublin was petty crime, while murder and gun-related crime was extremely rare. There was a strong sense of community between families, and the church had an influence on creating the law-abiding state of mind in Dublin.
During the 1970s, Dublin saw an increase in gun crime. One cause of the increase was the upheaval and violence in Northern Ireland. The main culprit for bringing in gun crime into Dublin was a paramilitary group called Saor Éire, which conducted multiple bank robberies to fund their organisation. During one such robbery at Allied Irish bank, Garda officer Richard Fallon was killed. One notable person who joined Saor Éire was Christy Dunne, who would go on to make one of the first Irish crime families, with connection to Britain’s gun and drug trade. Soon ordinary criminals (with little political influence), would join/cooperate with the Dunne crime family. Mainly partaking in co-operative robberies, this included Christy’s eight brothers, and many recruits who would then pursue their own crime families such as Martin Cahill, John Cunningham, George Mitchel, and John Gilligan. The majority of these criminals coming from the poor and uneducated industrial slums of inner-city Dublin.
In the beginning, Dunne specialized in kidnapping. In 1978, the Dunnes broke into an Antigen pharmaceutical factory, stealing pharmaceutical drugs which would go for a high price on the black market. Due to the profit, the Dunne’s would put their priorities in the drug trade as their main source of income. What also occurred during this period is the emergence of the Provisional IRA and the Official IRA, who did the bulk of bank robberies and murder.
