Fairies are frequent characters in stories from across Wales. The fairies known as Plant Rhys Ddwfn sometimes appear as mermaids in Pembrokeshire folklore. | Mae’r Tylwyth Teg yn ymddangos yn aml mewn storïau o bob cwr o Gymru. Mae’r tylwyth teg sy’n cael eu hadnabod fel Plant Rhys Ddwfn weithiau’n ymddangos fel môr-forynion yn llên gwerin Sir Benfro.
