Internet fame for Hennebont plaque artist

July 2019


The artist-craftsman Ieuan Rees, who carved the plaque given by Mumbles to Hennebont at an opening ceremony on 13 June 2019, has unwittingly become a YouTube phenomenon. A video recorded about him in his studio in 2012 and posted on YouTube has 'gone viral' (as we say in the trade), with over 2 million hits. The story was widely reported in the Welsh press and international media.
