- "Now some of you are young so there's no reason you'd remember, but there was a time when the Irish owned Hell's Kitchen. Wasn't a mother's son could make a move without giving us our due, and any sorry shite dull enough to cross us paid a heavy price. We had the cops, judges, councilmen. We had the whole bloody city at our beck and call."
The Kitchen Irish were present for a drug deal at Central Park, along with the Mexican Cartel and the Dogs of Hell. When the Blacksmith failed to show up, the gangs got nervous and eventually began firing on each other after undercover police officers were discovered among their ranks. This resulted in the death of Frank Castle's family.
Following the incarceration of Wilson Fisk, Nesbitt met with their members at a bar as they made plans to take control of Hell's Kitchen. Before they could go ahead of their plans, the Kitchen Irish was massacred by Punisher with Grotto as the only survivor. Grotto is killed by the Punisher too, leaving the group decimated.
Hunting the Punisher
Under the leadership of Finn Cooley, the group begins to hunt the Punisher and is eventually able to capture him. Finn tortures the Punisher for the location of the cash the latter stole from the gang. The Punisher eventually gives up the location, but this turns out to be a trap, as the cash was rigged with explosives. Finn himself is soon killed by the Punisher, who manages to escape his confines. Most of the gang is either killed or incarcerated afterwards.
The Last Irishman
- "Hey, it's Mickey. Yeah, anyone else make it? Oh, shit, I'm the only one left? No, I'm good. I'm good. Yeah, about to board. Tell Dublin to get ready for a big party. I'm on my way."
- ―Mickey O'Hare
The Punisher continued to kill the Kitchen Irish until only one member was left alive: Mickey O'Hare. To try and escape the Punisher, Mickey booked a flight to Dublin, Ireland from JFK International Airport. While in a bathroom stall at the airport, he was tracked down by the Punisher and strangled with his own tie.
