Almost everyday of 2012 there have been reports of murders and crime in the capital. The majority of these have been gangland related but there have been numerous other incidences of violence too.
RTÉ crime drama Love/Hate has tapped into this reality and has been a huge hit with viewers. Thecity.ie interviewed some people living in Dublin about their real-life experiences. We also asked a counsellor to contribute some helpful information.
