Cwsg Osian

Daithi links to this article in the Western Mail. It’s a review of a new book on Michael D Jones, who established “Y Wladfa”, the Welsh colony in Patagonia in 1865. The National Library has a nice site on the trials and tribulations of the project. And finally the Irish connection – Eisteddfod Chubut – the winning ladies party in last year’s Chubut Eisteddfod in Patagonia. It’s an excellent version of “Cwsg Osian” – Osian is your Oisín of Tir Na Nog.
