Alec Corscadden and his wife Mamie who the
Arcadia Ballroom in Bray, Co. Wicklow during the 1940s and 1950s. It was
one of the premier ballrooms of the Irish showband era, large enough to
accommodate 5,000 on the dance floor. We understand it
was damaged by a fire in the 1960's and closed in the 1970's. Although formerly
a Cash and Carry,
it is now apparently empty and for sale.
