Boston is especially associated with The Irish Mob, but, as noted above they can turn up anywhere. Notably in recent years, it's become increasingly popular to set a work with The Irish Mob in Ireland itself.

The Mob originated in the early 19th century and until the rise of the [[TheMafia Italian]] and [[KosherNostra Jewish gangs]] in the 1880's and later was the dominating force in New York organized crime. During the Twenties the Mob was a major player and many of the first flush of gangster movies featured Irish gangsters - famously Creator/JamesCagney made a career out of playing them, starting with ''The Public Enemy'' (1931). Nevertheless the Irish Mob waned after these years, struggling under competition with the Italian gangs and their own leadership struggles. They also slowly became less necessary: the Irish communities in America and Great Britain gradually assimilated and no longer needed gangs to protect them from disgruntled locals (because they ''were'' the disgruntled locals). Not that they ever went away - both in reality and in fiction the Mob has maintained a presence to this day, especially in [[{{Southies}} South Boston]].

The Irish Mob is often depicted as more anarchic and '[[LowerClassLout casual]]' than TheMafia, preferring shabby pubs and [[strike:Yorkshire flat-caps]] t-shirts to Italian restaurants and fedoras.

* The Chicago South Club, the ''VideoGame/WatchDogs'' universe's equivalent of the Chicago Outfit, except Irish and more powerful. Not a coincidence, either; the Club was formed following the St. Valentine's Day Massacre from a union of all of Chicago's Prohibition-era Irish gangs to match the threat posed by the Outfit, whom they eventually defeated and absorbed.
