==Description==
 
==Description==
Niko drives the group to the [[Bank of Liberty]] on [[Columbus Ave]] which is located in [[The Exchange]], [[Algonquin]]. They rob the bank of [[Money|$]]1 million and make their [[Wanted Level in GTA IV|escape]] through the streets and [[Emerald LTA|subways]] of [[Chinatown, Algonquin|Chinatown]], [[Algonquin]]. Packie is proud that he and his gang, including Niko, kept their heads and managed to get the money to split between themselves. Niko is awarded $250,000 at the end of the mission.
+
Niko meets Patrick, Michael and Derrick at [[Maureen McReary]]'s house in Dukes. After a brief introduction, the group drive to the [[Bank of Liberty]] on [[Columbus Ave]] in [[The Exchange]], [[Algonquin]]. Armed with guns and wearing balaclavas, Michael keeps an eye on the civilians in the foyer whils the rest of the group head to the vaults. After making their way into the vaults, the group steal $1 million from the vault. However, Michael is killed by [[Eugene Reaper]], who is subsequently killed by Patrick. The remaining members return to the street and find themselves surrounded by NOOSE and LCPD members. After fighting their way to a subway station, the group escape via the subway tracks, eventually returning above ground and stealing a [[Huntley Sport]] to make their getaway. After evading the police, Niko drives the remaining group members back to Maureen McReary's house. Patrick mourns the loss of Michael but congratulates the rest of the group for pulling off the heist, and gives Niko his $250,000 share.

==Glitches==
===Preparation===
 
Before the mission (as you're driving around), Packie will SMS you about wearing a smart suit and shoes from [[Perseus]]. Listen to him or the mission will not start. There's a bug - when already wearing suit and/or shoes when mission appears, it is needed to go to your safehouse, change clothes to "no suit & shoes" and change it back to suit & shoes. It is also recommended before this mission that you go to a weapon shop (or simply call Little Jacob for weapons) and stock up ammo (preferably Rifle), body armor, and grenades. When you arrive at his house, you will meet [[Derrick McReary]], [[Gerald McReary]], and their friend [[Michael Keane]]. Gerald does not take lightly to Niko being involved in the family business and reminds [[Niko Bellic|Niko]] that [[Derrick McReary|Derrick]] has returned. After the [[cutscene]], Packie tells Niko to get a car with four doors so they can all fit.
 
   
[[File:Three_Leaf_Clover_1.jpg|thumb|229px|Michael, Packie and Derrick in the bank.]]
+
==Aftermath==
   
===The heist===
+
=== [[Weazel News]] (Radio) ===
Find a vehicle with four door and drive to the [[Algonquin|Southern Algonquin]] branch of the [[Bank of Liberty]]. A cutscene will show Niko, Packie, Derrick, and [[Michael Keane]] threatening all the customers to get on the floor of the bank. [[Luis Fernando Lopez]] and [[Eugene Reaper]] lay on the ground whispering about Eugene having a gun on him and Luis telling him not to do anything. Derrick and Packie have an argument, giving Eugene the chance to shoot Michael and kill him. Packie and Derrick kill Eugene in retaliation. The team then blows up the vault door.
+
''"The daring heist took place at a Bank of Liberty branch in Downtown Algonquin earlier. One of the robbers was killed in the raid. He was identified as Michael Keane, a felon from Dukes. A bank customer, computer engineer Eugene Reaper attempeted to stop the robbery and was murdered. Authorities are on the lookout for three suspects.''
   
Head down into the vault as inquired and grab $1 million for your teammates. [[NOOSE]] and [[LCPD]] police officers arrive at the scene with helicopters and cars, prompting Packie to decide that they need to leave now with the money they have already collected.
+
===[[Liberty Tree]] Newspaper===
  +
''"A daring raid on a downtown branch of the Bank of Liberty has left one robber dead along with multiple police and civilian casualties. The suspect has been identified as Michael Keane, a convicted felon from Dukes. Four men wearing suits and balaclavas entered the branch and held the customers hostage while blowing the door to the vault with explosives. In the confusion, brave customer Eugene Reaper attempted to stop the robbery and was murdered in cold blood. Three robbers left the bank on foot and fought their way through police before escaping on the subway. Authorities are questioning all known associates of Mr. Keane in an attempt to discover the identities of his accomplices. The Bank of Liberty estimates that in excess of half a million dollars was stolen."''
   
===Escape: Chinatown===
 
Niko, Derrick, and Packie take cover at the front of the bank and begin to gun their way out of a five-star [[Wanted Level in GTA IV|wanted level]]. Due to the heavy presence of [[NOOSE|heavily armed officers]] and [[Vehicles in GTA IV|vehicles]], you must be careful with your [[Health]] and [[Body Armor|Armor]]. There are roughly 16 standard cops spread out over the street. The best way to take these and other officers in this mission out is to throw bombs near several parked Police Patrol Cars. The explosion from the cars will kill any nearby officers and knock others to the ground, and possibly ignite other cars. Any remaining officers are best dispatched by a shot to the head, especially so for the otherwise heavily-armored NOOSE officers.
 
 
[[File:All_this_money_and_niko_would_end_in_Vice_city.jpg|thumb|302px|Niko grabbing the money from the vault.]]
 
Help your remaining teammates shoot their way through an alleyway. Gain protective cover and [[Wikipedia:Blindfire|blind fire]] the 12 men of authority. You must then proceed through three streets in [[Chinatown, Algonquin|Chinatown]], but not before shooting a loaded cop car that obstructs their path to the three streets. The first street you come will have two cars (one NOOSE and one normal police car) with about 6 men in total. Get cover in a side alleyway, like your teammates, and pick off the men with a headshots to conserve ammunition. The second street has the most amount of cops in the level, so it is wise to take excellent cover, possibly behind a burnt out car. There are cops on fire exits above the streets, and several men on the ground, around 30 cops. You can just spray them with a [[Sub Machine Gun]] so as not to waste [[AR-15#Grand Theft Auto IV|M4A1]] bullets. The final street is the easiest as there are almost no men, and you can quickly run across the street and into the alleyway ahead of schedule. There are several cops on the street, but as you are sprinting it is unlikely they will hit you. The trio are trapped out in an open alleyway by an [[Annihilator|police helicopter]] and the team attempts to shoot it down. It stays hovering, leading Packie to save the crew by taking them into a subway station.
 
 
===Escape: Subway===
 
Two police officers are waiting for them down in the [[Emerald LTA|station]]. Packie and Derrick jet by them but you should shoot them down with a pistol headshot, or you can just ignore them as they will not follow you down.
 
 
When you enter the subway gates, there are two cops shooting at Packie and Derrick so take them out with a quick headshot while they are standing still. The next part of the subway consists of killing four cops waiting for the group in cover behind some gates. After dealing with them eight NOOSE officers storm up the stairs. At this point you should aim to kill as many of them via headshot as possible, and taking cover if any are left, because they are very deadly in such close proximity. There is a first-aid kit on a pillar here, which you can use to get back to full health. Go down the steps and into the subway to escape. There are 8 cops across the tracks in a group. They are easily taken out by something such as the rocket launcher as they are close together and at safe distance, otherwise aim for the head as usual. When you get onto the tracks 10 NOOSE officers try to follow you. You can kill them, but you can also leave some of them as eventually Packie and Derrick are going to make a run for it. When you flee through the subway tunnels, be aware of metro trains which might cross your path. Being hit by a train leads to immediate [[Wasted|death]]. Also note that the trains run on left track, instead of the right track as usual. So if you walk on the tracks, you'd better walk on the right track, so you can see trains approach. This is the final encounter with police until you get topside, all the while Packie and Derrick argue about Michael's death, with Niko telling them to shut up. Eventually, Packie leads the team back to the surface via a maintenance entrance in [[Easton]], by which time the wanted level has been reduced to only three stars, which is fortunate as your ammunition or health may be low by now.
 
 
===Escape: Above ground by vehicle===
 
Once outside, a parked [[Huntley Sport]] is available for you to steal. The objective now is to lose the wanted level, this can be done as normal. When they finally lose the police, Packie asks Niko to take him and [[Derrick McReary|his brother Derrick]] back to his [[Maureen McReary|Mom's]] house in [[Meadows Park]], [[Dukes]] (on Savannah Avenue near the [[Monoglobe]]). On the way, Packie explains how they will split the [[money]]. Niko, Packie and Derrick get $250,000 each. The remaining $250,000 will be given to Michael's parents since he died in the heist.
 
 
On average, Niko, Packie and Derrick will kill about 100 cops, however it is possible to kill a relatively small amount of cops by ignoring some of them and going for less-lethal shots with others.

==Trivia==
 
* About gameplay:
 
** This mission cannot be played at night. Others missions like this would be would be [[Bernie Crane]]'s missions.
 
** If Packie, Derrick, or Michael die before they reach the bank, the mission will fail immediately and the surviving two characters will wander off into the street. They will then act like any pedestrian, smoking, drinking, or sitting on benches. However if they exit the player's vision, they will disappear.
 
** If too many hostages are killed, the mission will fail. However, after the cutscene where Niko steals the money, the player can kill hostages without failing the mission.
 
** Unlike in "[[Waste Not Want Knots]]" at the start, when Micheal is alive, they do not shoot at police or any other threat that will hurt you, or themselves. This could be due to the fact that in "[[Waste Not Want Knots]]", they had to make the characters attack because there's no cutscene. However, in this mission, there's a cutscene that allows Rockstar to change the behavior of Packie, and Derrick.
 
** Once [[Dwayne Forge|Dwayne]] becomes a good friend, you can call him to send backup. This comes in the form of two gangsters that will follow you through thick and thin and shoot at your enemies. Even if they don't take out many targets, they create a great diversion that takes the focus of enemy fire off you. Give it a try; this is a great mission to phone in a favor.
 
** If the player chooses to shoot down the Annihilator, like Niko suggests, it will explode, despite being very close to the ground. This was likely done to prevent the player from obtaining it.
 
** The [[Wanted Level in GTA IV|five-star wanted level]] that [[Niko Bellic|Niko]] gains after the robbery is permanent until it is reduced near the end of the mission. It cannot be removed even by using [[Cheats in GTA IV|cheats]], calling [[Francis McReary]] or [[Kiki Jenkins]]'s clear wanted level skill, or fleeing the borough. It is also not possible to get six-star wanted level because it locked on five-star during robbery.
 
** If [[Niko]] dies during the mission, his bag of money will rip open and a large amount of bills will fly out.
 
** If Derrick or Packie are killed during the mission, Niko's balaclava will disappear and he will throw down his M4, similarly to the way he throws away an empty weapon.
 
** If Derrick or Packie get killed on the way back to their moms house one of them might drop you off there in a beige-brownish [[Moonbeam]] thus failing the mission.
 
 
* About story:
 
** This is the first appearance of [[Derrick McReary]], [[Gerald McReary]] and [[Luis Fernando Lopez|Luis Lopez]].
 
** During the trip to the bank, the group plans for each robber to take down a security guard. Despite this, there aren't any security guards at the bank.
 
** During the mission, Derrick will say things like "It's like being back in The Troubles" or "I haven't seen combat like this since Belfast". This might indicate that Derrick fought in Belfast with the PIRA.
 
** While Niko is going inside the vault, you can hear Derrick say "Keep your eyes on the floor!" or "We're nearly done here, keep calm people!"
 
** Like [[Hostile Negotiation]], Niko has many taunts only used in this mission, including "You don't want to get in my way.", "I ain't going to jail in this country", "Go back home to your kids. You don't wanna die here", "I'm fighting for this cash", "I ain't giving up this money", "Back off. The money's ours now.", "We just made a withdrawal, what's the problem?", "There ain't no reason to get in my way", "You don't wanna die for the bank's cash.", and "I got plans for this money, I ain't dropping it.".
 
** The amount of [[Money|money]] stolen is $1 million (and the reward is $250,000 each for each of the four robbers, it is implied Michael's share is given to his parents). However, the [[Liberty Tree]] website states that $500,000 was stolen.
 
** Niko is awarded $250,000 at the end of the mission; this reward, along with the reward given from [[If the Price is Right]] {{Deal}} and [[Out of Commission]] {{Revenge}} is the highest reward available in GTA IV.
 
** If the player calls [[Roman Bellic|Roman]] after completing the mission, Roman will tell Niko how he heard about the robbery and mentions that it's shame that Niko wasn't involved. Niko tells him that he was, much to Roman's surprise.
 
 
* Bugs & errors:
 
** During the trip to the bank, Packie says that Michael and Niko will rig the safe. However, later on during the trip, Packie says that Niko and Derick will rig the safe while he and Michael will "take care of the kids".
 
** At the start of the mission, the gang is armed with [[AK-47]]s, but during the cutscene [[Niko Bellic|Niko]] and Michael have M4s, [[Packie McReary|Packie]] has a [[Pump-Action Shotgun|pump-action shotgun]], and [[Derrick McReary|Derrick]] has a [[Pistol|pistol]]. After the cutscene, Derrick and Packie have AK-47s and Niko has an M4 unless you use the poor weapons cheat to use an AK-47.
 
** In the [[PlayStation 3]] and [[Personal Computer|PC]] versions, after the [[cutscene]] where [[Eugene Reaper]] is shot, if the player examines the floor by [[Luis Fernando Lopez|Luis Lopez]] they can see that Eugene is still alive with his hands on his head; instead, there is a dead fat bearded man beside them.
 
** In the cutscene in which the police arrives at the bank, you can see policemen without pistols (just holding their hands and arms like if they were aiming) alongside other cops. Despite of this all the cops during the gameplay are armed.
 
** Although there are two bags in the vault, Niko comes out with three.
 
** When Niko makes his way back up with the bags of money, he sits the two down on the floor. Once that small cutscene is over, it will appear that Derrick and Packie already have the bags on them.
 
 
* Reference:
 
** The mission's name is a reference to the fact that in Ireland, four leaf clovers are considered lucky. Unfortunately, while there are initially four robbers, Michael is killed, leaving just three.
 
** The outfits the group wears during this mission (suits with [[Balaclava|balaclavas]]), the weapon Niko uses (an [[AR-15|M4A1]]), the large black bags of money slung over your back and the general setup of the mission is an obvious homage to the 1995 film ''[[wp:Heat (1995 film)|Heat]]'', in which [[wp:Robert De Niro|Robert De Niro]] and his henchmen [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL9fnVtz_lc%7C rob a bank in similar fashion], including a subsequent run-and-gun shootout in the surrounding city streets of Downtown L.A. In both heists a member of the gang named Michael dies.
 
** The mission also references the 1991 film ''[[wp:Point Break|Point Break]]''; during a bank robbery in that movie, one of the hostages (a plain-clothes police officer, as opposed to a gun club member in the game) decides to take down the robbers, succeeding in killing one of the crooks but ultimately leading to their own death. In both the movie and the game, the would-be hero also discusses their plan with a neighboring hostage, a security guard in ''Point Break'', [[Luis Fernando Lopez]] in GTA IV.
 
** About '''PE4''' which Derrick mention by ([https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C-4_(explosive)#Similar_compounds referenced from Wikipedia]): "''The British military uses a very similar plastic explosive known as PE4. Like C4, it is an off-white colored solid and its explosive characteristics are nearly identical to C4. The type and proportion of plasticizer used differs, and PE4 has a slightly greater velocity of detonation, 8,210 m/s (26,900 ft/s).''"
 
 
* Related to TBoGT:
 
** The storyline for TBoGT [[I Luv LC|starts]] from this mission.
 
** The mission is seen again in the final DLC [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]. This time, it is the [[I luv LC|opening cutscene]] of the DLC, which starts where Eugene and Luis talking while lying down. Like commonly believed, Luis was there to pick up money for [[Anthony Prince|&quot;Gay&quot; Tony Prince]].
 
** According to the cutscene in [[I Luv LC|I luv LC]], Niko wore the [[Perseus]] Charcoal Suit for the heist. This remains true in even in the [[Personal Computer|PC]] version, in which the suit is not available.
 
** When Luis leaves the [[Bank of Liberty|bank]] after it's robbed in the introduction of [[The Ballad of Gay Tony|TBoGT]], Niko, Packie, and Derrick almost hit Luis in the crosswalk, although this does not at all happen in the original GTA IV. Even if the player goes to the exact same spot Luis will not be spotted. This is likely because the plots for the two DLC's had not been written at the time this mission was created.
 
** In the mission, after leaving the subway there will be a [[Huntley Sport]] provided as the escape vehicle for Niko, Packie and Derrick. However in the opening cutscene in TBoGT they are driving a [[Presidente]] and (as mentioned above) nearly hit Luis with it. Note that the Huntley used in the mission is unique for being the only Huntley with an alarm system.
 
** In TBoGT you [[Ladies' Night|discover]] that Packie spent his share of the money from the heist on a red [[Comet]].
 
** In TBoGT, [[Eugene Reaper]] stands up when he shoots [[Michael Keane|Michael]]. But in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], he is kneeling. This possibly refers to police getting different stories from witnesses at crime scenes, as Niko saw him kneeling but Luis saw him standing up.
 
** When Eugene Reaper is killed in this mission, Patrick and Derrick shoot him, but in [[I Luv LC|I luv LC]], only Packie shoots him.
 
** When [[Eugene Reaper]] tells [[Luis Fernando Lopez|Luis Lopez]] his plan to kill Michael and asks Luis what his name is, Luis' dialogue in "[[I Luv LC]]" is different from his dialogue in "Three Leaf Clover". In "Three Leaf Clover", when Reaper asks Luis what his name is, he says, "Luis, but this ain't such a good idea bro." In "I Luv LC", Luis says, "It's Luis, man, but I don't think that's such a good idea."
 
** In "[[I Luv LC]]", after both Michael Keane and Eugene Reaper are killed and the bank vault blows up, you can see a bunch of smoke and you can hear a woman crying, but in "Three Leaf Clover", when both Keane and Reaper are killed and the bank vault blows up, you don't see any smoke and you don't hear a woman crying.
 
 
* Related to GTA V:
 
** [[Rockstar Games]] has stated in a ''GameInformer'' issue that the bank heist theme for this mission will be one of the main themes for ''Grand Theft Auto V''.
 
** This mission is often referenced in [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. For instance, if one hires [[Packie]] as a gunman for the Paleto heist, he shares a detailed overview of the mission, from how [[Michael Keane]] was shot, the overwhelming [[LCPD]] force, to how they had to enter the [[subway]] tunnels to escape. The impact of Three Leaf Clover seemed to have spread nation-wide, as [[Michael De Santa]] mentions that he was aware about the bank job in [[Liberty City (HD Universe)|Liberty City]] and that he was stunned at the fact that Packie was one of the bank robbers.
 
 
* Reception of this mission by fans has shown that robbery missions are very popular; many fans cite it as their favorite mission in the game.

==Trivia==
  +
*The mission's name is a reference to the three-leaved Shamrock clover commonly related to St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.
  +
*The general setup and execution of the heist is based on the heist featured in the 1995 film ''[[wp:Heat (1995 film)|Heat]]''. Eugene Reaper killing Michael is based on a scene from the 1991 film ''[[wp:Point Break|Point Break]]'' where one of the hostages kills a bank robber before being murdered himself.
  +
*During the mission, Derrick will say things like "It's like being back in The Troubles" or "I haven't seen combat like this since Belfast".
  +
*Part of this mission (the shootout on the street) appears in the [[Credits (TLAD)|credits]] of ''[[The Lost and Damned]]''.
  +
*Although the mission can be done any day of the week in-game, I Luv LC reveals this heist canonly took place on a Saturday afternoon.
  +
*This mission is often referenced in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''. For instance, if one hires Patrick as a gunman for the Paleto heist, he shares a detailed overview of the mission, from how Michael Keane was shot, the overwhelming police presence, and how they had to enter the subway tunnels to escape. After Patrick finishes describing the heist, [[Michael De Santa]] expresses his surprise at Patrick being one of the gunmen.

Niko meets Patrick, Michael and Derrick at Maureen McReary's house in Dukes. After a brief introduction, the group drive to the Bank of Liberty on Columbus Ave in The Exchange, Algonquin. Armed with guns and wearing balaclavas, Michael keeps an eye on the civilians in the foyer whils the rest of the group head to the vaults. After making their way into the vaults, the group steal $1 million from the vault. However, Michael is killed by Eugene Reaper, who is subsequently killed by Patrick. The remaining members return to the street and find themselves surrounded by NOOSE and LCPD members. After fighting their way to a subway station, the group escape via the subway tracks, eventually returning above ground and stealing a Huntley Sport to make their getaway.

After the MissionEdit

  • Gerald McReary will call Niko and ask to see him in Dukes.
  • The terrorist threat separating both sides of the West River is lifted, opening up the Booth Tunnel and Hickey Bridge. Niko is able to travel to Alderney legally, with the entire map now open to the player.
  • This will also unlock the Full Exploration achievement on the Xbox 360, or PC version or, if the PlayStation 3 version is being played, the player receives the Full Exploration trophy.
  • Shortly after this mission Packie will call Niko and be added as a friend.
  • The balaclava is now added to Niko's wardrobe.
  • All weapons (with the exception of RPGs and Desert Eagles) can now be purchased from gun stores around the city.

DeathsEdit

  • Michael Keane - Killed by Eugene Reaper in an attempt to intercept the robbery.
  • Eugene Reaper - Killed by Packie and Derrick as a revenge for killing Michael Keane.
  • Several LCPD and NOOSE officers - Killed by Niko, Packie, and Derrick for trying to stop them from escaping with the stolen money.
  • Luis Fernando Lopez (optional) - Can be killed once the cutscene of the police arriving the bank concludes. This does not affect the storyline.
  • Hostages (optional) - A couple of the hostages can be killed in this mission, though it is unlikely that this is canon, as killing more than three hostages will likely fail the mission.

TriviaEdit

  • The mission's name is a reference to the three-leaved Shamrock clover commonly related to St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.
  • The general setup and execution of the heist is based on the heist featured in the 1995 film Heat. Eugene Reaper killing Michael is based on a scene from the 1991 film Point Break where one of the hostages kills a bank robber before being murdered himself.
  • During the mission, Derrick will say things like "It's like being back in The Troubles" or "I haven't seen combat like this since Belfast".
  • Part of this mission (the shootout on the street) appears in the credits of The Lost and Damned.
  • Although the mission can be done any day of the week in-game, I Luv LC reveals this heist canonly took place on a Saturday afternoon.
  • This mission is often referenced in Grand Theft Auto V. For instance, if one hires Patrick as a gunman for the Paleto heist, he shares a detailed overview of the mission, from how Michael Keane was shot, the overwhelming police presence, and how they had to enter the subway tunnels to escape. After Patrick finishes describing the heist, Michael De Santa expresses his surprise at Patrick being one of the gunmen.
