COFIA CUNEDDA founding father of Cymru.

.

Photos shown here are of statue of Charlemagne near Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris. I took these on my trip to Paris in May. Other photos of this Paris outing are scattered accross a number of my blogs. No doubt sooner or later you will come across them, you will find them on Red Rembrancer, The Welsh Patriot, I'r Gad - Welsh Battlefield Campaign and in Welsh Remembrancer. Took so many photos to share with you, but for now lets get back to Charlamagne, founding father of ''Frankish France''. See below link to Charlemagne - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaHe is numbered as Charles I in the regnal lists of France, Germany, ...

Does this not inspire Y Cymru to want a similar statue of Cunedda and his sons, but where would such be best sited? Perhaps Mynydd y Garreg, Cydweli near Allt Cunedda or perhaps some where in the North, but where? Anyone got any ideas where best and of course historically appropriate. Whatever, I am sure this project is more worthy of your support and GRANTS, that those dozy LANDMARK WALES projects. Further, see my photos of Adpar and the Magyar chiefs, founders of Hungary, up on one of my blogs, but cannot remember which one?

ABEREDW 1282 - Saturday 13 - 12 -2008 and Abaty Cwm Hir on Sunday 14 - 12 - 2008 ADVANCE ANNOUNCEMENT

.
The annual alternative to Rali Cilmeri, following the more truthful historical account regards what happened on the 11 Rhagfyr 1282, for fuller information see earlier posts in this blog. In Aberedw you can visit the Castle and depending on the weather you can take a walk to Ogof Llywelyn and then return for drinks & meals at the Seven Stars Inn (see their website) . Do note that the Seven Stars now has limited accomodation, so if wishing to stay the night book well in advance. The next day, Sunday 14 Rhagfyr you may visit site of the massacre of Irfon Bridge, near Builth Golf Course and then proceed to Abaty Cwm Hir to lay your personal tributes at the Cofiwn memorial over the grave of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, Llywelyn III Tywysog Cymru.

EDWARD'S FIELD 1284 - 2009 725th ANNIVERSARY FEATURE. Call For Yma o Hyd Commemoration.

.
Following on the assassination of Llywelyn III in 1282 and execution of Dafydd III in 1283, Edward I in 1284 held a Parliament at Rhuddlan which delivered the Statutes of Rhuddlan. In the same year work began on his great castles of Conquest, including the Castle of Caernarfon. On 1 AWST 1284 Edward held a great celebration of Conquest at Nefyn in a field which has since become known as Edward's Field. For further information check out web site below and other sources on the web, I post below photos which will further identify the location of Edwards Field. Do note you can gain access to walk across via a public foot path Gate, see web maps for exact details of location and all footpaths.

To locate footpath first locate Capel Seion - B near the former St Mary's Church/Maritime Museum, note Car Park. Look for street sign STRYD Y PLAS and there over the fence is Edward's Field and close by the footpath sign post which leads you on to the field, check out web for route & distance of Footpath. The idea being that as from 1 Awst 2009 patriots take a walk across the field with Baneri Llywelyn & Glyndwr, just to make the point ''Yma o Hyd''. Further, another possibility, as 1 Awst 2009 is a Saturday, is to hold a Patriotic Parade/Walk along the path into Edward's Field with as many Baneri Cymru Rydd as possible plus Banners and Placards declaring COFIWN 1282, COFIWN 1283 and COFIWN 1284. Not least Poster Placards calling for Welsh Independence, and of course NO MORE ENGLISH PRINCES OF WALES, whatever, wonderful chance for a great Radical Nationalist Assembly with great significant and symbolic purpose. All this may include a Patriotic Picnic during the afternoon and possibly an evening of Patriotic entertainment at Tafarn Bryn Cynan under the imposing Mynydd Garn Boduon, indeed the fittest of patriots may want to walk atop Garn Boduon to rise up Baneri Cymru Rydd. However, I think it all needs some local organisation otherwise Patriots from other parts could do so informally, it's up to you. Shame to miss opportunity to score some propaganda points against the Brits, why not a Gwyl 'Yma o Hyd', Nefyn 2009, maybe such could then become an annual festival?
