    That's a really interesting family history. I bet your parents have some very fascinating stories to tell. From what I've read The Westies were small in number but they sure did a lot of contract murders and other crime. I suppose if you lived there you just minded your own business. Hell's Kitchen is such a famous place.

    The Morrigan (also Mrrigan or Morrigu) is one of the most mysterious figures in Irish mythology.
    The name Morrigan means 'phantom queen' (or 'great queen') and describes a Goddess from old Ireland that was very associated with war, destiny, fate and death.
    She was a shape-shifter and frequently appeared as a black crow, an ominous sign for those who saw her prior to battle. Legend has it that the Morrigan was in fact a triad of sisters, often named as Badb, Macha and Nemain, while the Morrigan is also remembered as the triad of the land Goddesses riu, Banba and Fdla.

    I have some familial connections to the Westies, my Irish side is from Hell's Kitchen. On of my relatives used to be a bookie within the organization.

    I would love to know people like that. I would just love to have a conversation with them. It is such an interesting part of the American story.

    Yeah, my father has some crazy stories to tell because he not only did he live in the same neighborhood but he frequented some of the same bars as the Westies.

    Yeah, it's crazy though because before DNA science was a thing the Westies used to cut up bodies in bath tubs and remove the body parts from the apartment(s) piece by piece
    via trash bags.

    I was at a bar, on the West side, named after an Irish gangster called Mickey Spillane's and it basically a gay bar now. That is not a real neighborhood bar anyway IMHO.

    I think my grandfather on my mom's side was in the Irish mob but he was just a bookie or whatever taking bets.

    Yea I was pretty shocked to learn about some of the not so upstanding people in my family. I have some other connections to different organizations that I can't mention because it's a little more serious. Most my family is from Missouri which was a bastion for outlaws of all varieties. Most people won't believe it but my direct paternal lineage was part of the same militia as Jesse James and the Younger Brothers, idk if they ever my met my grandpa or knew him but they most likely fought together at some point. My uncle had to flee to Argentina after the civil war, the rest fled West for a few generations.

    You and JamesBond have a much more colourful family history than myself. I've just started watching the doco and it is interesting. The way Spillane is pronounced is different in Ireland. It would be pronounced Spil-lann in Ireland. It sort of grates on me the way he pronounces it. Anyway all the people look very Irish. Only career was a Gangster, a priest or a cop. Stereotypical Irish-American.

    The Morrigan (also Mrrigan or Morrigu) is one of the most mysterious figures in Irish mythology.
    The name Morrigan means 'phantom queen' (or 'great queen') and describes a Goddess from old Ireland that was very associated with war, destiny, fate and death.
    She was a shape-shifter and frequently appeared as a black crow, an ominous sign for those who saw her prior to battle. Legend has it that the Morrigan was in fact a triad of sisters, often named as Badb, Macha and Nemain, while the Morrigan is also remembered as the triad of the land Goddesses riu, Banba and Fdla.

    Bookies used to be the big money makers before drugs took hold, now gambling is a lot more legitimate.
