Where are they now? – The ‘Maguire’ family from Shameless
From Series 2 onwards, the Maguire family dominated the Chatsworth estate, with regular run-ins with Frank Gallagher and his family.
The Maguire Family are a half Irish, half English crime family working and living on the Chatsworth Estate. They are head by Scouser mother Mimi and Irish father Paddy. Throughout the series members of the family came and went, with some marrying in and others divorcing out.
Other members of the family include sons of Paddy and Mimi, Donny and Joey, who are only seen briefly in the first few series (Series 2 to Series 4) and rarely mentioned, their whereabouts are unknown, along with Fergal who was murdered by a rival crime family in Series 4, as retribution when one of their members was murdered by Jamie.
