Frongoch camp prisoners remembered 100 years on

Events have taken place in Gwynedd to mark the centenary of the internment of Irish prisoners.

The camp at Frongoch, near Bala had been used for German prisoners during World War One.

But on 11 June 1916 it became a camp for 1,800 people suspected of taking part in the Easter Rising in Dublin.

They remained until that Christmas before returning home as heroes.

Descendants of the prisoners took part in the events.
