A bad day for Cymru a good day for Cymraeg

This week we our hearts went out to Daniel James missing the final spot kick against Poland. This meant Wales agonisingly missed out on qualifying for the Euro 2024 this summer.

The game was shown on the Welsh language TV channel S4C, not on the BBC or ITV. So tens of thousands of fans tuned in despite not speaking or understanding a word of our Welsh Language. The Sgorio team have been praised for their commentary and has since led to a new appreciation of the language by our neighbours ‘just across the bridge’.

I don’t speak any Welsh yet the universal timbre, rhythms, cadences and bantering of the commentary team lets me know exactly what they are saying. It’s a revelation!

The passion the players showed playing for their country was reflected in the pride and passion of the crowd who even after the final whistle were singing Yma O Hyd. It’s that Cymreictod ‘Welshness ‘ that is what Goodwash is all about. And while we speak many languages at Goodwash, we are passionate about sharing the beauty of the Welsh Language with the World.
