|Aug-11-05|| ||TheAlchemist: Iolo? Cerredig? Are those common names in Wales?|
|Aug-11-05|| ||offramp: Iolo is short for Iorwerth, which means 'handsome lord', and Cerredig is probably one of the many variants of Caractacus - the tribal chief who rebelled against the Romans.|
Handsome Lord Caractacus Jones.
|Aug-11-05|| ||Anatooly Homedepotov: "Jones" kind of spoils the exotic beauty of the name for me.|
|Aug-12-05|| ||TheAlchemist: <offramp> Thanks. I love Welsh names because of their uniqueness, like these geographical: Llandudn, Ffestiniog, Clwyd, Ystwyth, etc.|
|Jun-26-09|| ||myschkin: . . .
Welsh Chess Union moto:
"Ymosodiad Dewr; Amddiffyniad Sicr"

He is notable as the co-author of the only Welsh language chess manual, <A chwaraei di wyddbwyll?>, which he wrote with his father, T. Llew Jones.
Jones has competed at 14 consecutive Chess Olympiads between 1972 and 1998. He won a gold medal for his performance at the Olympiad Novi Sad, Yugoslavia, in 1990
|Oct-07-10|| ||owenll: The proper spelling of his name is Iolo Ceredig Jones - it is misspelt on many online chess resources. Ceredig (5th century) was a son of Cunedda, and the county Ceredigion is named after him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceredig|
|Feb-06-11|| ||GrahamClayton: Jones made his comeback to the Welsh Olympiad team in 2010, and narrowly missed gaining his FM title. He worked hard - his average number of moves made for each game was 71.|
|Sep-25-11|| ||perfidious: To see Jones' bio with the title 'Candidate Master' is something of a bad joke, for he was a player who may well have made IM in his best days.|
