Learning Welsh at Nant Gwrtheyrn

Last month, just before the start of term, one of our Celtic Studies lecturers, Peadar Ó Muircheartaigh, took off to the beautiful Llŷn Peninsula for a week-long Welsh language course.
After attending Abersytwyth University’s month-long intensive Welsh course in August, Peadar headed north to Pen Llŷn, and to the unique village of Nant Gwrtheyrn, where an abandoned former quarrying village has become a National Welsh Language and Heritage Centre drawing people from all over the world to study Welsh short courses. Once an active quarry, Nant, perched between the rock face and the Irish Sea has been beautifully restored, as some of Peadar’s pictures attest:
‘It was a great to be able to visit Nant, and most especially to meet some of the local people who have made Nant Gwrtheyrn such a success story, dw i’n edrych ymalen at fynd yn ôl’, said Peadar.
