N:One of his tunes had to pay tribute to these hills;
N:not the Fork Hill region that Paddy Kavanaugh celebrated,
N:but the same nearby hills of Monaghan that Ed's mother
N:and his Aunt Ann spoke of in childhood stories. Ed's
N:mother played no musical instrument, but she could "lyddle"
N:all the great tunes of her region. This love of the tradition she
N:passed on to Ed.
