The Irish Wise Guys is a no-holds-barred account by John Joe McGinley focusing on the most notorious Irish American Gangsters, crime bosses for whom death and destruction was a daily currency in their lives. Gangsters like Whitey Bulger, Vincent ‘Mad Dog’ Coll, George ‘Machine Gun’ Kelly and Owney ‘The Killer’ Madden. In different circumstances these men could have been captains of industry, politicians or union leaders. Instead they choose a path of crime that would make them into some of the most wanted men in America.... This is their story.
McGinley is a regular contributor to Irelands Own magazine and the Irish Central website. He lives in Glassagh, Donegal along the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way just a few minutes drive from the birth place of Vincent 'Mad Dog' Coll whose life story inspired him to write Irish Wise Guys.
