Whereas the Eisteddfod's official website explains that the event "exists to promote culture and the Welsh language", culture and the Welsh language making only very fleeting appearances in the Council's record of the event, with Labour bigwigs taking centre stage instead.

- sharing fudge with First Minister Carwyn Jones
- shaking hands with Carwyn Jones
- talking to Scarlets players with Carwyn Jones
- shaking hands on the Coleg Sir Gâr stand
- giving a speech
- posing with a mixed group of Labour councillors, children and a few parents under the heading "families"
- meeting Lesley Griffiths, Labour's Minister for Local Government (let's hope the subject of that letter did not come up)
A couple of Kev's "Independent" coalition partners manage to get mug shots in, but if Meryl Gravell and Pam Palmer did attend, they have been air brushed from the record to make way for Tegwen Devichand (Lab), one of Kev's deputy leaders.
Tegwen is not exactly known for her commitment to the Welsh language and culture, so you may wonder what she is doing at the Eisteddfod. The answer is a photo opportunity with Jane Hutt (Lab), Minister of Finance.
One of the awards handed out on the Council's stand on the Maes was for "Carmarthenshire's loveliest location". The prize went to Cefneithin Village Hall (below), and took the form of a bilingual slate plaque engraved with the words "Hafan hadda' Sir Gâr/Carmarthenshire Loveliest Locality".
A pity nobody bothered to check the spelling because there is an "r" in hardda', and there ought to be an 's after Carmarthenshire.
