Member of the Irish American Killers.


The Irish Mafia are a criminal organization based throughout Liberty City in the GTA IV Era, headed by the McReary family. They operate in Dukes and formerly the West Side in Purgatory, Algonquin.


The Irish American Killers used to be a powerful force in Liberty City, but its influence has diminished greatly as of late. The gang as well control West Side Purgatory in Algonquin, as well as most of Broker, but the expansion of the Italian Mafia and Russian Bratva encroached on their empire. Also, most of the gang members have a tendency to spend their money on drugs, alcohol, and women rather than saving it and using it to expand the family's interests. As a result, the gang consists of mostly hired guns.


Gerry has been in and out of prison over the years, significantly damaging any stability the gang hoped to maintain. With Gerry back in prison, the leadership has fallen mostly on Patrick McReary ("Packie"), the youngest of the family. Under Packie's control, the gang has been reduced to hired mercenaries for the Pegorino Family, working for the incompetent Ray Boccino, or dealing drugs for the Torres Cartel. Other members include a former provisional IRA member named Derrick McReary, the eldest brother, who has been crippled by heroin addiction. He was in charge of the gang but quickly relinquished control to Gerry, and has since alienated former members Bucky Sligo and Aiden O'Malley by allegedly giving them up to the Liberty City Police Department.


Currently, the gang is involved in armed robbery, extortion, kidnapping, murder, drug dealing, and vehicle hijacking. Other members include Michael Keane and Gordon Sargent. The gang is also discredited by the fact that one of the McReary brothers, Francis, is ambitiously pursuing the job of Commissioner of Police. Such a connection is greatly damaging to the reputation of both parties, and are a very strong and powerful mob.


Niko Bellic also works as a hired gun for the Irish. He was introduced to Packie through a mutual friend, drug kingpin Elizabeta Torres.


In the Drug Dealing minigame in GTA Chinatown Wars, they sell Acid and buy Ecstacy through their drug dealers around Steinway. Members can be seen driving green and red roofed Bobcats and Burritos (which also have ladders). They also carry Uzis.

* The Irish Mafia own the two Irish pubs in Liberty City; Steinway Beer Garden and Lucky Winkles.
