Golau’n Dallu / Dallta ag na Soilse - Urdd Gobaith Cymru & TG Lurgan || Cymru (Wales) & Éire (Ireland)
Triais alw ti Dwi ‘di bod ar ben fy hun rhy hir Beth am i ti ddangos caru’n bur, mor bur
Mae’r awydd yma’n gry’ Does dim rhaid ti wneud rhyw lawer iawn ‘Mond dy gyffwrdd di, dwi’n deffro’n llawn, mae’n wir
A’ breathnú timpeall – Sin City fuar ‘s folmhaithe (oh), Gan duine ar bith le mo thaobh (oh), Ní fhéadaim brath gan thú bheith ann.
‘s deir mé ooh, mé dallta ag na soils’, No, ní fhéadaim brath nó go mbeidh tú lem thaobh ann.
Dwi’n deud, w, mae’r golau’n dallu fi Dwi methu cysgu heb dy gyffwrdd di Mé a’ ríocht amach ar aghaidh, Má fheicim fíor na spéire á lasadh aríst, Mar sin buailim ród mar aon le’n ngaoth, a chléibhín.
Ond mae’r ddinas wag ‘ma’n oeri (o) Does yna neb i ‘marnu (o) Ac heb weld ti, dwi’n mynd o ngho’ o o Dwi’n deud, w, mae’r golau’n dallu fi Dwi methu cysgu heb dy gyffwrdd di ‘s deir mé ooh, mé ag crith liom ag d’aghaidh, Oh, ní fhéadaim brath is tusa mo thartháil Hé hé hé.
Cerdded heibio dwi er mwyn cael sôn Methu’n lân â deud hyn dros y ffôn Dy gynnal di’n y bôn ‘di’r nôd
‘s deir mé ooh, mé dallta ag na soils’, No, ní fhéadaim brath nó go mbeidh tú lem thaobh ann. ‘s deir mé ooh, mé dallta ag na soils’, No, ní fhéadaim brath nó go mbeidh tú lem thaobh ann.

Original lyrics:
I've been tryna call I've been on my own for long enough Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe I'm going through withdrawals You don't even have to do too much You can turn me on with just a touch, baby
I look around and Sin City's cold and empty (Oh) No one's around to judge me (Oh) I can't see clearly when you're gone
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust Hey, hey, hey
I'm running out of time 'Cause I can see the sun light up the sky So I hit the road in overdrive, baby, oh
The city's cold and empty (Oh) No one's around to judge me (Oh) I can't see clearly when you're gone
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust
I'm just walking by to let you know (By to let you know) I can never say it on the phone (Say it on the phone) Will never let you go this time (Ooh)
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch Hey, hey, hey Hey, hey, hey
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch

The Welsh Government have recently announced that to apply for a job with them soon you will have to demonstrate a ‘courtesy level’ of Welsh. And ooooh boy are the bitter trolls angry about this!
So let’s take a little look shall we? Dewch ymlaen pawb. (come on everyone.)
Firstly what on earth is a courtesy level of Welsh? Well-
Tumblr media
So answering the phone bilingually ‘Bore Da-Good Morning’, ‘Prynhawn Da- Good afternoon’ and this is really wild but you can use those same words on speaking to a real life person too 🤯
Interpreting short texts sounds hard? Yes but you can use the provided technology to help you.
What if I am the best person for the job, it’s my ideal job but I don’t speak Welsh? Well my friend….
Tumblr media
AND
Tumblr media
Courses for staff will be free to staff. Often provided during the working day. And you have six months to show you are willing to learn. Six months….
Look, sarcasm aside Welsh is an official living language of Wales. We use it daily. We tell jokes, we fall in love, we complain through Welsh. My mother didn’t (couldn’t) speak English till she was 8. I didn’t speak English till I was 3…. There is a Welsh Language TV Chanel. You may have heard of some of the actors Matthew Rhys, Ioan Gruffudd, Alexander Vlahos or Iwan Rheon- all Welsh speakers- all been on S4C.
All Welsh speakers speak English though. Yes, yes we do- two languages in one head-aren’t we clever 🤷🏻‍♀️ just because we can doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have the choice. The Welsh language (Cymraeg) is alive because people fought for it…and the fight goes on. But because we’re this tiny little country who also speak English it’s a ‘dead’ I.e not important language. Fuck Off!
What about immigrants?- you know buddy immigrants have more than one language themselves- usually several and have proven themselves by learning Welsh.
What about Welsh people who don’t want to learn Welsh though? Um, not answering that one!
The Welsh Government are the Government of a country with two official languages- asking for a courtesy level of one of those two languages is as it should be.
Diolch.

Hello! I’m a queer Welsh writer living in Ceredigion. I’m the one man team behind the Llyfr Enfys Project- where I’m writing Welsh’s first ever LGBTQ+ dictionary! 
The project is split into 2- the first edition of the dictionary contains 80 terms such as:
Anghyfunryw-Heterosexual
Anneuaidd- Nonbinary
Anrhywiol- Asexual
Bwtsh-Butch
Camenwi- Deadnaming
Cydryweddol- Cisgender
Deurywiol- Bisexual
Dirywedd-Agender
Dyn Traws- Trans Man
Dysfforia Rhywedd- Gender Dysphoria
Hollrywiol- Pansexual
Hoyw-Gay
Lesbiaidd- Lesbian
Menyw Draws- Trans Woman
Niwtrois- Neutrois
Rhyweddhylifol- Genderfluid
Trawsryweddol- Transgender
Ymgwestiynu- Questioning
And many more terms to fill in the gaps of language, such as coining terms for aromantic, transmasc, transfem and mspec identities! 
I would really appreciate if you could reblog this and share it with any langblrs you know to spread the word!
I also run a Welsh LGBTQ+ discord, dm for a link!
Diolch yn Fawr.

Site of St. Trillo's Celtic Monk's Cell, Rhos-on-Sea, North Wales.
St. Trillo was a 6th century CE celtic monk who established a hermit's cell on this site. His original cell is long gone, likely constructed from wattle, daub and a wall of stones. The site was probably chosen as it is the source of a natural spring (under the altar in the current six person chapel). The current chapel is of an unknown age and has been repaired many times over centuries. It is likely that St. Trillo kept livestock in the marshes that once occupied the land which is now currently the town centre. Rhos-on-Sea gets its name from this site. The current chapel is thought to be the smallest in the UK.

You know why I hate seeing the UK in Eurovision? It's always about England. Theres hardly EVER Welsh, Scottish or Northern Irish singers representing the "United" Kingdom. Roll on the day when us 3 Celtic countries become independant, possibly even join Europe again, and slay Eurovision with our thousand harps, blaring bagpipes, over the top dancing and screaming out our Celtic languages! Now THAT would be something I'd be proud to see.

Geological map of Great Britain in embroidery, and the official BGS map behind. In England can be found the young Weald Anticline, and the fossil rich ‘Jurassic Coast’ along the discordant southern coastline. In Wales are the lithologies of the early Palaeozoic; slates in Snowdonia and coalfields in the South–Wales syncline. And Scotland is a land of highlands: deformed by multiple mountain–building orogenies, cut by immense sub–parallel faults, and dotted with ancient volcanoes like Glencoe.
