Mobs Mheiricea - Pat Nee
Pat Nee was born in Rosmuc, Co. Galway but grew up on the tough streets of Southie in Boston. In an exclusive interview Nee recounts how he fell into a life of crime and charts his rise to the top of the Boston Mob. For years Nee ran the Southie rackets alongside the notorious 'Whitey' Bulger before concentrating his energies on running guns to the IRA. In 1984 he made headlines on both sides of the Atlantic when he put together the largest shipment of arms ever sent to the IRA from the US aboard the Valhalla.
