In the same spirit that caused a group of Welsh to beat up a paediatrician under the misapprehension that he was a paedeophile, I wonder how long it will be before someone gets the wrong end of the stick and beats the living daylights out of a group of Yorkshire Terriers?

A number of footballers continue to die, including ex-Welsh international Tony Rowley & the most famous of the current spate: Tommy Garrett, who was capped for England and played in the legendary 1953 "Matthews Final".

He is the greatest artist that Wales has ever had.- there will never be another Kyffin Williams

Can anyone name any other great Welsh artists?

Lots of Welsh artists here. Never heard of any of them. The Welsh should stick to singing.

I've only heard of four - Rolf Harris, Laurence Llewyllen Bowen, Frank Lloyd Wright and Bryn Williams.

 

Three of them as their Welsh link is slight, and Bryn Williams cos of F1, but he's a photographer.

 

and I'm Welsh.

 

I agree. Art isn't our thing. Stick to singing, rugby, sheep, getting drunk, coal mining & narrow-mindness. :)

Ivor Emmanuel Welsh actor that was in Zulu, amongst other things.

Not an actor HCW, but an opera singer.

 

Ivor's finest screen moment, about 2 minutes in;

 

 

I stand corrected, the phrase 'The Hollywood star' at the beginning of the 3rd paragraph obviously threw me.
