—Case Teaser

No Luck for the Irish is a case featured in Criminal Case as the eleventh case of The Mystery Continues. It is the fifth and penultimate case set in the Crimson Banks district of Concordia.


The player and Giulietta headed to Paddy Whacks to stop a potential attack from the Italians. Once the duo arrived at the pub, they were greeted by the body of local drunkard Dustin Donnelly, his head smashed in and bloodied. Dick confirmed that Dustin was hit by a sharp object, likely a bottle, and was killed after the pieces penetrated his skull and brain. The pair first suspected lawyer Gregory O'Brien, Maddie's mother Eileen O'Malley and leader of the Irish gang Eamon Gilligan before hearing that the victim had been sleeping in an abandoned windmill outside town.

After searching the windmill, they suspected painter Niall Brady and Giulietta's uncle, mobster Francesco Moretti. Fleur also analyzed the murder weapon after telling them about a book Diego had bought her as a thank you. Giulietta and the player then reconvened in the pub when the pub was shot at by Italian mobsters. After a while, the pair were able to arrest the shooters along with the killer who was revealed to be Niall Brady.

Niall confessed to killing Dustin, saying he deserved it for betraying his own blood. Confused by Niall's statement, Niall further explained that Dustin had recently joined the Irish gang but had been feeding information about the gang to Francesco. When Niall discovered this, he confronted Dustin at the pub where they started fighting. Niall then grabbed a bottle and smashed Dustin over the head with it, killing him. At his trial, Niall pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to twenty years in prison by Judge Oakley. Afterwards, Arthur told the player to head back out to dig further into the serial killer before any more attacks happened.

The player and Isaac first spoke to Niall in prison about Dustin working for the Italians. Niall explained that Dustin would give Francesco letters with information on along an alleyway in the main street, prompting the pair to head there. After some searching, they found the letter which revealed the Irish had been ordering torches. To get some real answers, the pair spoke to Francesco who revealed that Eamon and his gang planned to arson and deface multiple landmarks in the district to lure out the Silent Stalker and kill them.

Francesco then hurried away, leaving his satchel which the duo picked up and searched through. Inside the satchel, they found a cryptex which, once unlocked, revealed Francesco was the one who planned the attack on Paddy Whacks. It also revealed that he organized many more attacks as part of his revenge against the Irish. As Francesco had quickly fled, Isaac and the player raced to Giulietta and asked her where Francesco could be hiding. Giulietta admitted that the only place she could think of was the old Capecchi house that burned down. With this new lead, the team decided to head to the old Capecchi family house to catch Francesco and end the attacks before the serial killer struck again.
