I haven't done any research on him, but maybe somebody has? Any write-ups on him (not the next-day reports)? Today I stumbled upon a quote by Damon Runyon, Jan 25, 1930:
"The cleverest boxer I ever saw wasn't Packy McFarland, but a kid called Irish Patsy Cline, of New York."

one reference i found..."a Ripley cartoon on lightweight contender "Irish Patsy" Cline entitled "New York's Latest Lightweight Contender" from November 3, 1916, shows up in the Vancouver daily over a year later "After World's Title."'

i can't find much of anything on this dude...
