Y Tincer is a local Welsh language paper, established in 1977 to serve the parishes of Genau'r-glyn, (Llandre, Dôl-y-bont); Trefeurig, (Penrhyn-coch, Pen-bont Rhydybeddau, Capel Madog, Capel Dewi); Tirymynach (Bow Street, Dolau,) and Borth. In January 1982, following an application to become part of the paper's circulation, the parishes of Melindwr (pentrefi Pen-llwyn/Capel Bangor, Goginan a Chwmrheidol/Aber-ffrwd) also joined. A selection of Tincer stories are available on the BBC website Lleisiau lleol
The name was chosen because the novelist, Tom MacDonald (1900-1980), hails from the area. He was born in Llandre to Irish tinker parents. After graduating from Aberystwyth University he was a journalist and newspaper editor in England, China, Australia and, for 30 years, in South Africa, before returning to Wales in 1965.
He published six novels in English - Gareth the ploughman (1939), The peak (1941), Gate of gold (1946), The black rabbit (1948), How soon hath time (1950), a The song of the valley (1951), each one set in Wales.
He also wrote two Welsh novels - Y nos na fu (The night that never was) in 1974 and Gwanwyn serch (Spring of love) in 1982, which were published after his death, and also a volume of memories The Poor Tinker, translated to English as The white lanes of summer (1975). The volume contain memoirs of his childhood in West Wales in the years before the First World War. The name suggests that the Tinker collected news while travelling around the area.
Y Tincer is published monthly from September to June by the Tincer Committee; published with some support from the Welsh Assembly Government; printed by Lolfa, Tal-y-bont; circulation: 800. From September 2008 onwards in full colour.
