The Irish King of Winter Hil is the story of the rise and fall James J. “Buddy” McLean, from his humble beginnings as a hardworking truck driver in Boston, to leading the original and now infamous Winter Hill Gang, to his untimely murder in 1965. He will best be remembered for eliminating the McLaughlin Gang from Charlestown during the 1960s McLean-McLaughlin Irish gang war. Buddy, who worked on the Boston docks in the late 1950s and early 1960s with his father’s union card, was also a teamster from Local No. 25. This was a time when gangsters ran the docks.This story is written by Michael McLean, who says, “I have read all the books and the information on the Internet about my father, and most of it is wrong. After talking to his closest friends, I decided I would set the record straight.”
