Y Genedl Gymreig
A weekly Welsh language newspaper and supporter of Radical principles. From 1892 onwards it supported the Liberal Party. The newspaper was established by Hugh Pugh, Evan Jones, W. Cadwaladr Davies and John Davies (Gwyneddon, 1832-1904) in 1877. It was printed by D. W. Davies until it was bought by the Welsh National Press Company in 1884. In 1892 the newspaper was bought by a company founded by a few Liberal members of parliament, and Beriah Gwynfe Evans was appointed editor. The newspaper played a prominent part in Radical politics at the turn of the century and during the campaign to dissociate from the Church of England. From 1892 onwards two editions were published, one for the North and one for the South. Amongst the paper's editors and contributors were John Owen Jones (Ap Ffarmwr, 1861-1899), Beriah Gwynfe Evans, John Thomas (Eifionydd, 1848-1922), E. Morgan Humphreys and O. Llewelyn Owain. Associated titles: Y genedl (1914-1937).
