In case anyone is curious (and in honor of St. Patrick’s Day), Ace High has an Irish family in it. Coincidentally, one of the children is played by Enzo Santaniello who also played one of the McBain children in Once Upon a Time in the West

, as well.

Maria Pia Conte played an Irish character “Susan” in And the Crows Will Dig Your Grave (Juan Bosch).

I think the compulsive nose-picker played by Aldo Berti in Return of the Holy Ghost (Roberto Mauri) is supposed to be Irish.

Thanks for sharing. Seems there are quite a few Irish characters in smaller roles which probably explains why I missed so many of them.

I was just watching Killer Caliber .32 and there’s an Irish character who I believed is played by Silvio Bagolini. Thought this one was noteworthy since he plays up the Irish drunkard schtick.

In the opening of " Sette donne per i MacGregor" there is an Irish family dancing with the MacGregor. They all end up in a big fistfight beween Scots and Irish :woozy_face:

Heh, fistfights seem to be a common occurrence amongst Spaghetti Western Irish characters.

Watching Twice a Judas now and there’s an Irish character, Mac Calhoun, played by Carlos Ronda.

I wonder if Banjo in Sabata is supposed to be Irish, simply on the grounds that William Berger dyed his hair red for it and, in the SW universe, red hair is visual shorthand for “Irish”. :thinking:

Hah, could be. Especially with the sideburns which also play into the stereotypical Irish look.

Is Salvatore Baccaro’s weird accent as ‘Saloon Servant’ in the Grand Duel supposed to be Irish?

It’s funny you mention it since I was actually watching The Grand Duel recently and thought the same thing at first. I think he–or the person who dubbed him–is just doing a terrible European accent, though.
