Llanrwst to host 2019 Eisteddfod
Shannon. My nine-year-old daughter, Evie, was starved of oxygen at six days old, so the idea of being left in a waiting room while Shannon went through this was so frightening for me.
“I called my husband Heath – Shannon’s dad – and told him I thought she was gone, because they were still working on her.”
After being in a coma for almost two weeks, Shannon started to sing along to Like A Prayer, which was playing in the background.
Nicola said: “After that she started singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow and when she e finished, she said to me ‘Mammy, I was over r the rainbow.’”

The National Eisteddfod Council was told that the Anglesey festival, which took place earlier this year, left a surplus of £93,200.
It has also confirmed that Llanrwst will hold the big event in 2019.
The Eisteddfod’s chief executive Elfed Roberts said the festival hasn’t visited the Conwy Valley in around 30 years.
Mr Roberts said: “The announcement is the next step in preparing for the Eisteddfod.
“The committees have all been created and are already hard at work.
“We are looking forward to starting the work at grass-roots level across the whole of Conwy county, to ensure the success of the project and the festival in the area.”
Conwy council leader Councillor Gareth Jones said the council will be “supporting the Eisteddfod Committee with their arrangements” over the next 18 months as they prepare for the event.
