Croes Honotius." A COLWYN BAY PLACE-NAME. In our last issue we referred to the fact that in the Catholic magazine edited by the Rev. Father Trebaol, of Llanrwst, the parish of Groes-yn-Eirias, Coiwyn Bay, is referred to as Groes Honorius." We asked whether the latter was the original place-name, and if so, how the change had come about. On this subject we have received a letter from that well-known historian and anti- quary, the Vicar of Prestatyn. The Rev. Meredith J. Hughes writes '— I drew attention to the matter years ago in your columns. Croes Eirias seems at one time to have been Croes vn Eirias. Person- ally, I am inclined to think that Eirias," which is an adjective (e.g., tan eirias, Eirias boeth) could not have been the original place- name. We have parallels to Croes Honorius in the two Croes Engans in the district. The oonxa, &r i"i ere s WKKWH < missionary, so far as I know. Still that is not an insuperable obstacle. The cross, at first, was probably a wooden one, and it would be interesting to search the hill in which Plas Eirias is situated for the possible ruins of an ancient oratory.
