I have this book and am halfway through it. It's hard cover. If you are still after it I'll sell it when I finished reading it. Cheers, Peter.
Looking for info about Buddy McleanNo score for this post

I was told that the Winter Hill Gang was built around the admiration of Buddy Mclean's ability to fight. The story goes that Buddy made a name for himself fighting on the Charlestown docks where he worked as a teenager. He also piled up dozens of victories against sailors and tough guys at the Alibi Club. Later on he branched out and fought in bars, clubs, and streets throughout Greater Boston. Mr. Irish Hood, I'd like to know what you or anyone else could tell me about Buddy.

I was a hoodlum in Southie alternating w/ Worcester. I now reside in Houston,Tx. I like to think that nothin's changed,but I know thats not true.When I was growin up the code was very real,but changed, not slowly,all of a sudden everyones talking.The code of silence for me was not taught but engraved in my character. The neighborhood of Southie was(sadly no more)an enigma; a piece of another country trapped in an enclave. A predominate Irish town that handles, helps, protects their own, and punishes their own.It may have been violent at times,but it WAS MY neighborhood.Now I dont even recognize it.SO KEEP THE CODE ALIVE!!!

Any information on Robert O'Neil from Charlestown...Lawrence Street. Died in the early 80's... Known to be connected to "Shakey" Dowd from Main st.
Also, any info on the murder of my brother Shawn O'Neil would be great. He was murdered in 1987.

While I grew up outside of DC in the 60s and 70s, my mother's family had then (and still) live in Charlestown on a side street off of Bunker Hill Street. Last I visited, (1996) gentrification had invaded, yet, much still looked the same not far from Saint Francis DeSales and the Thousand Flights. My family has lived in the same row houses for well over 100 years now. Back in the 1960s, those row houses could be bought for under 10 grand each. Now, since the invasion, they are worth upwards of half a mill each.
We visited every summer back then. A yearly highlight for me was watching, hearing and riding on the Orange Line EL that screeched above Main Street 24/7. Back in the summer of 1975 or 76, I remember drinking in the park at Doherty Playground with local youth and getting pretty fucked up. I was an outsider, but, being that my mother's family lived there, they mostly left me alone and let me drink with them. I recall it was mainly a girl or two that wanted to see me get my ass kicked. After, I returned to my aunt's and awoke the next morning with her shaking her fist in my face and one shoe missing! I don't believe anyone took it from me. I think I simply lost it in my stupor. There was booze and mescaline mixed together in a cooler that everyone had been drinking from.
Anyway, my grandmother's father and a brother were both named Bernard McLaughlin. She also had a brother named Charles. Yet, while the famous Charlestown gangland McLaughlin's were of my parent's generation (not my grandparent's), I wonder - nevertheless - if they are related to us. Na, there are more fuckin' Bernie McLaughlin's in Boston than there are John Smith's in all the USA!
