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.”
