Welsh Language...and the Untranslatable Hwyl

(Nigel Jones, UK, 05/20/18 10:01 am) As possibly the only (half) Welshman on WAIS, may I comment on this theme? Wales has, like its Celtic cousins Ireland and Brittany, a particular thing for music and poetry, so it is ...

Cwm Rhondda and Other Rugby Anthems

(John Heelan, UK, 05/20/18 7:24 am) Two of the joys, for me anyway, of the UK rugby season are the singing of national anthems (see David Duggan 20 May) by the crowd, but not the turgid and boring "God Save the Queen." ...
