Irish (アイリッシュ Airisshu?) is a Black Organization member who appears as the main antagonist in The Raven Chaser.


Not much is known about Irish, except that he had a lot of respect for Pisco and considers him to be like a father. He is therefore devastated when Pisco is cold-heartedly executed and his body left to turn into ashes, then he holds a deep grudge against Gin. It is unknown whether he ever killed anyone, but it is assumed that as a member of the Black Organization, he has in the past. His rank as subordinate in the organization has not been revealed, but it is high enough to directly contact the boss.

He disguised himself as Kiyonaga Matsumoto to infiltrate the police and retrieve a missing data card with information on the organization's Non-official covers. This data card is possessed by the culprit of a large-scale serial murder case, who had murdered their NOC Masaaki Okakura. While following the investigation, he becomes curious about Conan, researches him, and eventually discovers that he is actually Shinichi.

The evolution of the investigation leads all the police inspectors to the Tokyo Tower. Knowing that he is going to catch the culprit there, Irish knocks the other detectives out, helps Conan to defeat the criminal, and recovers the data card. But he then has to fight against Conan himself, and against Ran, who was looking for him and finally found him in the tower. After getting rid of her, he chases Conan until the roof of the tower. At the very moment that Irish gains a decisive advantage over him, he is found by the organization's helicopter. Gin, recording that he has the data card in his possession, and that his cover has been undisclosed, as Vermouth had signaled to him that the real superintendent had been found, orders his death. He is shot by Chianti, but is not fatally wounded. Conan then tries to carry him to a safe place, but Gin, noticing this attempt, asks Chianti to fire again.

Irish protects Conan from the sniper's bullet with his own body, a movement that causes his death. His last words are "Shinichi Kudo...keep coming...after us."


Irish seems quite smart, and endowed with deduction skills, as he manages to find out that Conan is actually Shinichi relatively quickly when he has only met him once. He also becomes suspicious about Conan only from hearing a few comments from other officers. However, he is far from being as shrewd as Conan in case solving, as during the police investigation, he is limited to recording the facts without suggesting any useful ideas.

He shows no hesitation at using lethal and ruthless force. He seems to enjoy challenges and appreciates Ran's karate skills. Confrontations appear to be enjoyable for him, continues to hunt Conan after beating him down.


Irish is left-handed.


Irish has been shown to be skilled in disguising himself, although his large stature constrains him to play only characters of that body type. He is also not as skilled as Vermouth in this practice. Despite these setbacks, he manages to remain undiscovered until the end.

He is a capable martial arts fighter whose strong body can count on well-mastered battle techniques. He single-handedly knocks out six police officers and a security employee, although it is very likely he hit them from behind. In addition, he is able to stand up to Ran in a hand-to-hand fight, defeating her after a balanced confrontation, though his winning strike may have relied on the element of surprise. This does not mean that Irish always benefits from advantages during his fights, as it has been shown that, unarmed, he could defeat a criminal carrying a stun gun with a single punch. He is just as precise when he uses guns as when he fights with his fists. For instance, he disables all of Conan's gadgets by firing at them without hurting him in any way.

As other organization members, he has a high pain tolerance, staying conscious after a very bad fall down metal stairs and after having been shot with a sniper.



  • Irish is a whiskey made on the island of Ireland.
