Dan-y-graig in the town of Swansea


"At DANYGRAIG is a chapel of ease. St. Joseph's Catholic church, at Greenhill, erected in 1888, is served by Benedictine fathers. The old church, built about 1870, is now used as a parish hall: there is a convent of Ursuline Sisters, who teach in the girls' and infants' schools."
