Ynys Môn AM praises Anglesey athletes in Assembly and asks for support for Island Games bid

During today’s First Minister’s Questions, Rhun ap Iorwerth praised the Ynys Môn Island Games team for bringing 10 medals back from Jersey.  Speaking in the chamber, he said:

“I know that the First Minister will agree with me that sport is an exceptionally important tool in attracting tourists to Wales, and, in that regard, I wonder if the First Minister would agree with me that providing early Welsh Government support for a bid to bring the Island Games to Ynys Môn in 2025 would be an important tourism boost for the island.

“And how could I not, of course, take the opportunity to invite the First Minister to extend the warmest congratulations to the Anglesey team that returned from Jersey just over a week ago with 10 medals?”

The First Minister responded by saying:

“May I join the Member in congratulating the Ynys Môn team? And, of course, I’d be willing to consider any bid as regards attracting the games to the island ultimately.”
