Dublin’s O’Devaney Gardens originally consisted of 14 blocks of social housing. When Dunn took this image in June 2016 there were just four units remaining as if awaiting their fate on death row. At this time local teenagers set fire to the unoccupied blocks almost every night. One evening Dunn witnessed Dublin Fire Brigade attend the scene in order to extinguish fires on three separate occasions. This image was taken prior to the arrival of the authorities.
