Have you ever thought about your first love, the one who gave you butterflies in your stomach for the first time?
Did you ever wonder how he or she is doing now?
Have you ever thought of meeting them again, but don’t know where to start looking?
Well the producers of the series The Town, filmed in and around Portlaoise, are looking for your stories.
So many people have lost out on love through situations they had little or no control over.
It could have been that your family disapproved of him/her back in the day, maybe he or she was gay and you didn’t know and it broke your heart, or maybe you were gay and felt you couldn’t come out at the time.
Did they or you, have to move abroad and you lost contact, or was it just that you never told them how you felt and would love the chance to do that now?
It could be that you were in another relationship, which is now over, but you could never forget him/her. Or, did you become a priest or a nun and never have the chance to follow your heart, but life has changed now and you would love to catch up with that person today to tell them how you felt.
Or did you have a one night stand and regretted never meeting again?
