Eddie became a member of ‘Let it Blaw’ in the early 1960s.

Edward Frances McCue (Eddie) was born in Balerno in 1919. He reached adulthood as the second world war was beginning so any interest he may have had in the Bard at that stage was put on hold while ‘Let it Blaw’ remained quiet between 1940 and the mid 1950s.

Records of who attended the annual Suppers when they resumed have not survived but, as he was still resident in Balerno, it’s likely that Eddie would have been involved during the late 1950s and was definitely involved from the early 1960s.
