Student wins Chair at Inter-Collegiate Eisteddfod

24 March 2016

Congratulations to Gethin Wynn Davies, third year LLB and Welsh student, who has won the Chair at the 2016 Inter-Collegiate Eisteddfod held in Cardiff on February 27.

Competitors were asked to submit a poem on the subject of ‘cam’, interpreting its meaning as they wished, whether to mean step or a wrong. According to Dr Llŷr Gwyn Lewis’ adjudication, Gethin managed to "employ the cynghanedd to his own uses, delivering his message in a fresh, economical and contemporary manner…This was a very subtle and succinct poem and certainly the most complete composition of the competition.”

Many students achieved success in the Homework competitions and on the Eisteddfod stage.

One student, Yann Guillaume Nurismloo, currently following the Welsh for All programme, was victorious in the Homework for beginners competition.

Dr Angharad Naylor, Welsh for All Project Manager, said: “Yann’s achievement is particularly notable given that he has only been learning Welsh since October. I am delighted that Welsh for All is proving such a success and look forward to expanding the provision in the new academic year.”
