NETTA JONES

We have received news from Anglesey that Miss Netta Jones, the last surviving member of the Welsh chapel in Talbot Street, Dublin recently celebrated her 100th birthday. Netta came to Dublin as a young girl to work in service for Sir John Purser Griffith, the Welshman from Holyhead who was chief engineer for the construction of Dublin port and docks in the 19th century. He lived in Rathmines Castle in Dublin (now the Church of Ireland training college in Rathmines) where Netta spent her working life. After retiring from service she returned to her native Holyhead and continues to live there in her own home. Netta's achievement follows on from that of former Draig Werdd member Howell Evans, who was also a member of the chapel and who died in 2012 at the age of 104 - you can read our tribute to Howell at www.welshsociety.ie/howell-evans/.

A great endorsement for regular chapel attendance!

NETTA JONES

Rydyn ni wedi derbyn newyddion o Ynys Môn fod Miss Netta Jones, yr aelod olaf sydd ar ôl o'r hen gapel Cymraeg yn Talbot Street, newydd wedi dathlu ei phen-blwydd yn 100 oed. Daeth Netta i Ddulyn fel merch ifanc i weithio mewn gwasanaeth ar gyfer Syr John Purser Griffith, y Cymro o Gaergybi a oedd prif beiriannydd ar gyfer adeiladu porthladd Dulyn a dociau yn y 19eg ganrif. Roedd e'n byw yng Nghastell Rathmines yn Nulyn (bellach y Coleg Hyfforddi'r Eglwys Iwerddon yn Rathmines) lle y treuliodd Netta ei bywyd gwaith. Ar ôl ymddeol o wasanaeth dychwelodd i Gaergybi ac mae'n parhau i fyw yno yn ei chartref ei hun. Mae cyflawniad Netta yn dilyn yr un cyflawniad o'r cyn-aelod Draig Werdd Howell Evans, a oedd hefyd yn aelod o'r capel a fu farw yn 2012 yn 104 mlwydd oed - gallwch ddarllen ein teyrnged i Howell ar www.welshsociety.ie/howell-evans-2/.

Ardystiad gwych ar gyfer presenoldeb rheolaidd yn y capel!
