The Irish Mob is the oldest criminal organization in America, however never received the notoriety of the Italian La Cosa Nostra, partially because of the fact the Irish Mob was never as organized, powerful or profitable as La Cosa Nostra. The Irish have given America Prohibition era gangs in Chicago, mobs in New York and Boston. The Irish have also given freelance gangsters such as Vincent Coll and Joe Sullivan, as well as an array of "connected guys" such as Henry Hill, Jimmy Burke and Eddie Boyle.
