X:1 T:The Bog of Allen [2] M:2/2 L:1/8 C:Ed Reavy S:The Collected Compostions of Ed Reavy R:Reel N:Mentioned eloquently in Joyce's short story, N:"The Dead" (in Dubliners). This desolate region reminds us of Yeats' N:line "the drifting, indefinite bitterness of life" Ed has always felt N:that far too much is made of Ireland's greenery and not enough said N:of her terrible greyness. Ed has lived to see the whole of Ireland, N:and he has tried to get as much of it as he could into his own tunes.
