The Gwynfo Choir was adjudicated an easy winner, both by adjudicator and audience, and to it was awarded the prize. This brought a highly successful eisteddfod to a close. One hears tho remark made, that as the chairman of the present eisteddfod was a Gwynfe man, and the great majority of the competitors and winners of prizes were also Gwynfe folks, the Rechabites of Llan- gadock might just as well hold their eisteddfod too at Gwynfe in future.
