Affiliation

Gambetti crime family

The Westside Boys are a predominantly Irish-American organized crime association operating from the Purgatory area of Algonquin's West Side in Liberty City. They are known for their brutality

HistoryEdit

Prohibition EraEdit

The gangs of Purgatory prior to the Prohibition were inf act the last vestiges of the 19th century Irish street gangs that roamed the street of Purgatory. Unorganized and wild, business-like gangsters used these men to aid their bootlegging operations.

Tommy Dannelly YearsEdit

After the remnants of the Prohibition era gangsters died out in the late 40's a young aspiring gangster named Tommy Dannelly seized the Westside rackets. Dannelly was a prodigy of Charles Gaffigan, one of the few remaining racketeers in Purgatory left over from the Prohibition organizations of Purgatory

Westside Wars & Rise of Michael NoonanEdit

The end result of the war with Mickey Noonan and his supporters left Dannelly disenfranchised. WIth few loyalists left he moved to Steinway another neighborhood with a sizeable Irish-American population, located in Dukes

McCreary familyEdit

During the late 80's and 90's the McCreary family gained status in Puragatory, after Noonan moved to the suburbs of Alderney. With Noonan's key members testifying against him during this time, this left a power vacuum in the Irish Mob of Purgatory.

Under blankEdit

a young man when the McCreary family moved from Purgatory, would become one of the last racketeers of Purgatory. Hanging onto what was left of the once large Westside Boys, Jack allied himself with the Gambetti crime family
