Meet the Maloneys
- James and his wife moved from Ireland to America twice before making their permanent home in Springfield, IL.
- Born in the USA. Irish to the core. JJ Maloney cheerfully ran liquor during the dry years and rubbed shoulders with Chicago's gangland.
- Also proud of his Irish heritage, Jack Maloney ran liquor with his dad during Prohibition and then --- once it was legal --- ran some fine taverns in central Illinois for many years thereafter.
