Sgt. Dan Shine and Houli

Fox’s Pizza in Orland Park & Mokena, Guinness, Madden Funds and Flood Brothers Disposal present the Hibernian Radio Hour and this week we take a dive into the vault and revisit one our favorite interviews from 2019 with Police Sgt. Dan Shine. Dan grew up in St. Gerald’s Parish, Oak Lawn and attended De LaSalle. He’s a 23-year veteran of the police force, a Navy veteran, and a proud Southside Irishman.  He joined the Force in 1995 and first took the Chicago Housing Authority test where he worked for a year before joining CPD in the city.  Dan shares some great stories of working the Violent Crimes midnight shift, particularly working the Midnight Gang Team from 2005-2008. These two pals also discuss nights at the 6511 Club; a bastion of Irish music back in the day, as well as encounters with Horse Keane and Michael Flatley there. He’s a member of the Canaryville Veteran Riders Association and The Emerald Society and he has been to Ireland 15 times where he was blessed with the Blarney! It’s safe to say this guy is a true Irishman and we’re always delighted to have this legend on the show! Then we head over to the recent obituaries and Houli pays tribute to his dear friends PJ O’Dea and Dick Haggerty, who passed over the Christmas holidays. We send our love to their families and friends during this difficult time. We end another great show with a well-needed trip to our favorite place known as ‘Houli-Town’.
