Derrick in GTA IV

"I went into a situation full of optimisim, full of naivete. I got burnt. Look at me... like smack on a fucking spoon."
―Derrick McReary, GTA IV

Derrick McReary (Irish: Pádraig Mac Ruairí) is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a main character in Grand Theft Auto IV, a cameo character in The Lost and Damned, a minor character in The Ballad of Gay Tony, and a mentioned character in Grand Theft Auto V. Derrick was an Irish criminal, mainly involved with the McReary crime family  with his brothers Packie and Gerald. Derrick went into hiding in Ireland, as he was caught stealing from the Mafia (probably Ancelotti crime family). He also gained great influence in Dukes and Ireland.


  • Even if you spared Derrick in Blood Brothers, he will still be dead by GTA V, as mentioned by Packie.
  • His old age and gray hair gives him a striking reference to Jimmy Pegorino.
