Google translates "The church of Mary in the hollow of the white hazel near the fierce whirlpool and the church of Tysilio by the red cave" as

"Eglwys Mair yng nghlog y cyll gwyn ger y trobwll ffyrnig ac eglwys Tysilio wrth yr ogof goch"

Gwyn is one of the few words the two translations have in common, and is the only Welsh word in the bunch that I know, meaning white. :D

That would also be correct....wouldn’t be so good as the name of the town though.

One of the comments on the YouTube clip says Welsh is a language invented by someone who was losing at a game of Scrabble. :D :D :D

Nope, even after 3 min & 22 sec of lessons, I still cannot say the name of that town. However, tx to SFA very helpful lessons, I can now pronounce (approximately anyway) the double "ll" because all you have to do is just hiss from the back of your tongue!

The Welsh learned that sound from hissing cats. :D
