While the streets of the Irish capital eventually proved just as susceptible to the influence of hardened crooks as anywhere else, amazingly the city was largely free of serious crime up until the late 1960s.

Following the history of this crime wave, trace the 1980s introduction of hard drugs into the city’s impoverished estates, hear about the desperate – and tragic – attempts to stop the heroin dealers taking over whole neighbourhoods and then learn how the Dunne Family – Dublin’s notorious criminal dynasty – moved from petty crime to become drug lords.
