* Being that both Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro are from a rough Boston neighborhood, and then went into work as {{Private Detective}}s in that same neighborhood, the Irish Mob has figured in several stories in the ''Literature/KenzieAndGennaroSeries''. They play the largest role in the second book of the series, ''Darkness Take My Hand'', although they're subject to DiminishingVillainThreat, as a SerialKiller and the Italians wind up being considerably bigger problems.

* "Whitey" Bulger is the most famous Irish gangster. He operated drug dealing and gun smuggling rackets out of Boston, and also spent 19 years as a U.S. government informant against rival Italian gangs before going into hiding for 16 years as one of America's 10 Most Wanted felons. They only caught up with him in 2011 and convicted him in August of 2013 for racketeering and 11 murders. (For an account of what life was like in Boston in the neighborhoods he dominated, see ''Literature/AllSouls''.)

* The Celtic Club in Cleveland is a bit more recent example, originally formed from young Irish-Americans by Danny Greene to serve as his personal muscle to protect his gambling dens. He then attempted to utterly destroy the Licavoli family and competed with them for control of the city during the 70s. The ensuing conflict resulted in Cleveland gaining the moniker "Bomb City, U.S.A" due to the popularity of the car bomb, and while the Italians killed off Danny Greene, he permanently crippled their influence in the city.
