Shamrock Crew

By Ryan Quinn Flanagan

Shamrock Crew

The Shamrock Crew
came up together
in little Dublin
and did favours for
the Sicilian

Carrying out contracts
and enforcing codes
of conduct.

They were notoriously brutal
and did the dirty work
for years.

they brought so much heat
that they themselves
were taken out.

Their leader
Sean O'Hara
once told me:
I answer to people
who answer to people
and the one who stops answering first

It's the best description
of the mob
I've heard to date.
