Here's a page I made with all Irish mafia movies.

Boondock Saints is not an Irish mob movie, sorry. But it does have a couple of Irish guys from South Boston. The movie has the Russian mob and the Italian mob.

One Eyed King is another Irish mob film with William Baldwin and Armand Assante set in Hells Kitchen.

Irish Eyes was made a few years ago and is set in South Boston. It stars Daniel Baldwin and John Novak.

I hated Ordinary Decent Criminal! Not because it wasn't any good, but because Martin Cahill was a piece of shit and the title suggests otherwise. The IRA shot the scummy bastard dead because he was dealing with loyalist gangs in the north. With the money they made from him they bought guns and ran around Belfast murdering Catholics. Ordinary Decent Criminal my ass.

ordinary decent criminal was shit. spacey's acting was abismal, the worst i have ever seen him. if you want to see the real martin cahil story, watch "the general". it shows cahill in a better (more factual) light. cahill was a murdering scumbag, but it has never been proven that the 'ra shot him. they just took responsibility. many believe the murder was carried out by up and coming king pin john gilligan.
