Just come back from a few days in Breizh.

Have noticed quite a few towns twinned with towns in Ireland, and one twinned with a town in Galicia.

Would be good to twin a town there with one in Kernow - anyone know how to go about this ?

Also saw a marvellous display set up in a supermarket near Rostrenen promoting school and college courses in the Breton language.

Very encouraging, especially the intention of the promotion to encourage children and young adults to learn.

To quote the graffiti on every roadside electricity substation - "BZH Libre" !

This website is a portal to all the Breton language and music radio stations that you can download from the internet. OK the language might be a bit tricky but the music is universal.

Stalig: http://www.stalig.com/

This site is for the Breton diaspora with music, TV, language and news. Again don't let the language thing put you off, just click and see what happens.

An Tour Tan: http://www.antourtan.org/

This is a forum and new site.

Kaouenn Net: http://www.kaouenn.net/?q=en

This is a site dedicated to the Breton language with some stuff in English.

Kervarker: http://www.kervarker.org/

Then finally if you are a Cornish speaker why not have a go with Breton and try some simple Breton comic books.

mabden,

You need to put you link between URL tags for it to work.

Here is that link: http://bretagne.realbb.net/

Just found out that the small town of Pleyber Christ is twinned with Lostwithiel. But the signs as you enter town only show a union flag next to the name Lostwithiel, nothing at all to indicate it is a place with strong connections to Brittany.

Does anyone know the Cornish still exist ?

These are ripe for some carefully placed St. Pirans flag stickers......

A note in from a Breton friend about a new site on Breton classical music.


Demat,

Setu ul lec'hienn nevez 'meus diorrenet e-pad vakañsoù Nedeleg (siwazh n'eo ket troet penn-da-benn evit ar poent e brezhoneg, digarezit ac'hanon). N'eo ket kalz anavezet an danvez-se gant an holl tud. Ha n'eus ket kalz traoù war ar genrouedad evit kavout pladennoù sonaozerien klasel Breizh. Gant al lec'hienn-mañ e c'hallot dizoloiñ ur bed nevez...

For the local elections coming up in France the Revolutionary Communist League (Trotskyists) and Emgann-MGI (Far left Breton independentists) are working together in Rennes. Polls give them about %6: http://www.rennesagauche.tv/

Equally the Parti Breton (centre) and the Movement Democrat MoDem (bit like the LibDems) have formed agreements in various localities.

Finally the Union Democratic Bretonne, as usual, is working alongside the Parti Socialist (the majority leftist party in France) and the Greens.

It would be a bit like MK working with Nu Labour for the elections to the Unitary Council or District Councils.

This is a bar in Breizh that I can only say good things about and its run by a Welsh man: http://crwtynrhifnaw.blogspot.com/

If you are in the area consider poping in for a Cornish Pasty and glass of Breton cider.

The owner is a true Welsh patriot and interested in national minorities and the Celts.
