Happy St Piran’s Day

Cornwall has a powerful national identity and a wonderful heritage. It includes the Cornish language, music, dance, sport and a range of traditions – all of which are vitally important to our sense of place and the very well-being of our local communities.

It is great to see a growing confidence in Cornwall and its identity, and it is my hope that one and all will be celebrating the distinctiveness of Cornwall today.

But I would like to repeat a key message that Mebyon Kernow makes around every St Piran’s Day.

The promotion of Cornish distinctiveness is not something that should be restricted to once a year in March. We should be doing all in our power, each and every day, to promote and enhance our identity and heritage.
