Bucky Sligo is a minor character featured in Grand Theft Auto IV. He was an Irish-American character who was linked to criminals in Alderney, Dukes and Ireland. He was an associate of Derrick McReary and Aiden O'Malley.


Sligo was suspected in a string of robberies for which O'Malley was convicted, yet the charges did not stick. Afterward, Sligo often spoke of Derrick McReary as a rat and threatened to kill his family, driving Derrick deeper into heroin use and depression (possibly because Sligo's claims were true).

Events of GTA IV and Death

A down-and-out McReary sent Niko Bellic to kill Sligo. Bellic tracked him down to a Burger Shot restaurant in Westdyke, Alderney. Sligo escaped in his car, retreating to the house where he was holed up with several armed accomplices. A shootout ensued, and Niko killed Sligo and his accomplices.
