Street gangs

An Irish-Koori street teenage gang operates around Palmerston Ave and Lombard St, Glebe. The area is known as ‘Kelly Country’. The gang’s heroes include Robin Hood and the Wiradjuri resistance warrior, Windradyne. Dennis Foley’s father is raised in 45 Palmerston Ave nearby, and is a member of the gang. Dennis Foley’s Auntie Mary Donovan lives in Leichhardt St and works as a domestic. Many Koori men work on the wharves at Blackwattle Bay.
