Saint David’s Day – A Day to Celebrate

On the 1st March Saint David’s Day is celebrated in Wales.

It’s a very special day for the Welsh nation, used to remember the death of the Welsh patron Saint David. He was recognized as national patron saint at the height of Welsh resistance to the Normans, and passed away in 569AD.

We’ve chosen to celebrate the day with you by featuring our two most popular Welsh blog articles.
