The Westies were once a powerful Irish crime syndicate that operated out of Clairemont Mesa West. Run by Boss Nesbitt, The Westies ran drugs and guns into the neighborhood. As Boss Nesbitt aged, the territory of Bay Ho was ceded, leaving the group only in control of Bay Park.
Since Tommy Toner took over The Westies, the organization has ‘downgraded’ from crime syndicate to street gang. Toner’s crew is more focused on petty drug dealing than larger organized scores, and spends a lot of time feuding with the crew of rival crime lord Maginty. Both organizations have also been hit hard by increased pressure from the Cesares, as well as the economic forces of gentrification.
