Many thanks for this link Jean -- that's my reading for the next few days. :-)

This caught my eye: "Holyhead is formed by Nature to become a great trading community."

Only partly true of course -- important maybe but not "great"

I also note there is  a section on "Trefigneth" giving its meaning as "a house on the quagmire" -- something previously unknown to me.
Not waiting for the others.

Well, I don't know ...  Someone's just suggested that Parliament should be relocated somewhere else other than Westminster.

How about moving it to Holyhead?

Then perhaps Capt. Jackson's prophecy would come true ...

Oooh, it's all "Wils, Wils, Wils!"
Rascal bach, you have no idea how hard I'm laughing at your last post.  You are so funny.
I think Rascal should apologise for Wils - seriously!

They could have the old market. The Prime Ministers residence could be at Porth-y-Felin, the Torys can put in claims for second homes in T. Bay, Labour can use the Mount Hotel and the Lib Dems can book in at the Skerries! (Either the pub or the island, really doesn't matter).  :D
Mum! Dad! Wheres my breakfast gone? And who's that blonde tart in my bed?
