Yma O Hyd

On the day that Wales play their first Football World Cup game for 60 years here is an article published by https://nation.cymru/ and writen by Heledd Fychan MS.


Whilst getting ready for school one morning last week, my nine-year-old son was singing ‘Yma o Hyd’.

He’s also been singing it in his class and in the schoolyard with his friends – an indication that Dafydd Iwan’s epic song and the Cymru Men’s Football Team anthem for the World Cup have captured the imagination and hearts of a new generation of fans.

And with Cymru’s journey at the World Cup starting tomorrow, we’ll no doubt be hearing a lot more of ‘Yma o Hyd’ in the coming days and weeks.
