Council to honour Wrecsam raised Welsh hero


Great news, I had an e-mail passed to me confirming that Wrecsam council will be flying the flag of Owain Glyndwr from the Guildhall tomorrow to mark Owain Glyndwr Day.

On 16th September 1400, Owain Glyndwr was proclaimed Prince of Wales at Glyndyfrdwy near Corwen, making him the last true Prince of Wales. 

Welsh Braveheart Glyndwr, who was brought up in the Wrecsam Maelor area, led a 15-year war of Independence against the English crown and also set up Wales' first parliament 600 years ago. He sacrificed everything for a free Wales with its own national institutions. 

Don't forget to raise a glass tomorrow to a true Welsh hero! 

I Gymru.
