The most heartbreaking story I've ever read is William Trevor's "The Ballroom of Romance."  "But someone else had got Patrick Grady, a girl from the town who'd never danced at the wayside ballroom. She'd scooped up Patrick Grady when he didn't have a chance."  The story has been made into a film and now has inspired a play which will be staged in Brockagh Lower in the very ballroom that inspired the story.
