Ras Yr Iaith 2014

Another quick post, this time to highlight the success of June’s “Ras yr Iaith”, a symbolic relay race organised by Welsh-speakers to celebrate their community and publicise their demands for greater equality in Wales. Inspired by similar events held here in Ireland, Brittany and the Basque Country (the latter for many years) one thousand runners started in Machynlleth and moved through the towns of Aberystwyth, Tregaron, Lampeter,  Aberaeron, New Quay, Llandysul, Newcastle Emlyn and Cardigan greeted along the way by enthusiastic crowds. Judging by online publicity it had a major impact locally.
