Suggestions of symbolism within the play 'Dancing at Lughnasa' by Brian Friel?

I'm writing an essay and I've written a few ideas: the radio= industry, new technology, luck= paganism vs. Christianity, Michael's toys, symbolism of place. Any others would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for your time. :)

Friel's play employs the central motif of dancing and music to explore themes of Irish cultural identity, nostalgia, historical change, and pagan ritual.
