A MAN from Gwynedd won the National Eisteddfod Crown for a second time this week.

Guto Dafydd from Pwllheli previously won the esteemed prize in 2014.

This time around, he scooped the crown and the £750 cash prize thanks to a series of poems he wrote whilst out on a walk along the coastal path between Trefor and Pwllheli.

The 29-year-old came out on top against 28 other entries as ajudicators chose his work as the best.

After being handed the crown, Guto said his poems relate to thh "coastal villages and the myths and legends belonging to the Llyn Coast". He described the feeling of winning for a second time as "great".

The 2019 National Eisteddfod crown was made by Angela Williams at her studio in Caernarfon.

It features bright copper presented by the Great Orme copper mines in Llandudno for use in creating the piece.
