Cymdeithas Yr Iaith Gymraeg At 50

2012 is the 50th anniversary of the founding of Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg (the Welsh Language Society) and The Penny Post carries a series of articles celebrating an organisation that has revolutionised the linguistic landscape of Wales in the last half-century:

“It is difficult to remember how invisible the Welsh language was in the Wales of the early 1960s. It was seen on chapel notice boards, on gravestones and at the Folk Museum in St Fagans, but virtually nowhere else…”

How things have changed. And how much we Irish have to learn from the Welsh.
