Welsh rhyme about Abergele

I’R FFAIR.

Ar garlam, ar garlam,
I ffair Abergele;
Ar ffrwst, ar ffrwst,
I ffair Lanrwst.

– Owen M. Edwards, Yr Hwiangerddi

This is an old out-of-copyright Welsh nursery rhyme.
Translation:
At a gallop, at a gallop,
To Abergele fair
In a hurry, in a hurry
To Llanrwst fair.

It’s from a collection of Welsh nursery rhymes gathered together by Owen M. Edwards, who also founded the Urdd Welsh youth movement.
