Cast & Crew
W. H. Clifford
As Irishman Denny O'Hara celebrates his marriage to Eileen O'Connor, the landlord evicts his sick mother. After finding her dead, Denny goes after the landlord but discovers that he already has been shot by a poacher. The priest suspects that Denny will be blamed for murder and convinces him to board the next ship for America. Denny settles in Arizona, where he plans to make his fortune and then send for Eileen, but earning it proves so difficult that he decides to rob a shipment of money. Although another robber has preceded him, Denny locates the hidden money and buries it on his ranch, and soon Eileen joins him in Arizona. Before long a detective traces the crime to Denny, but the sheriff, who has made Denny a deputy, declares that the Irishman has found the money and the thieves. Repentant, Denny captures the robbers and turns over the money, thereby clearing his name and his conscience.

Clifford Photoplay Co. first announced the film was available for the state rights market in December 1917, but it is unclear whether the film was released at that time. Ernest Shipman, formerly the sales manager of Clifford Photoplay, took over the distribution of the Shorty Hamilton series in mid-1918 and released Denny from Ireland in May 1918, when it was reviewed in trade journals. Victor Kremer, general manager of Clifford Photoplay when the film was first announced, bought the distribution rights to the Hamilton series in early 1919 and placed the film on the state rights market again later that year.
