Caer Idris Miss Lucy Griffith, of Glynmalden, near Dolgeltey, a lady deeply interested in
Welsh folklore and Welsh antiquities generally. She obtained her information from
a Dolgettey ostler, formerly engaged at the Ship Hotel, to the effect that on
Gwyl Galan, the eve of New Year's Day, a person is seen walking backwards
and forwards on the strand of Cynnwch Lake, crying out:
Maer awr wedi dyfod ar dyn heb ttyfod!
The hour is come while the man is not!
The ostler stated also that lights are to be seen on Caer Idris on the eve
of New Years Day.
