Llanycrwys is a community located in Carmarthenshire, Wales. Situated in the historical Hundred of Cayo in the Union of Lampeter, it is situated near the Cothy River, and is separated from the parish of Caio by the Twrch River, which flows near the St. Davids church.[1][2] The church is isolated, and was restored in 1892 by C. H. Purday of Ewan Christian, who had a porch on the western side, with a timbered gable.[3]

In 1934, local schoolmaster Daniel Jenkins published Cerddi Ysgol Llanycrwys,[4] a collection of Welsh language poetry written by well-known Welsh poets for the celebration of St. David's Day at Llanycrwys between 1901 and 1920.
