How did Plaid do in 10 target seats/

I saw very little of campaigning on the streets in my part of Wales , and received only the Royal Mail election communications, From Plais , The Brexit Party , Labour and UKip.

Nothing from the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and Greens.

As for the Plaid leaflet

Looking at the front page, I counted  30 of the 40 Welsh constituencies listed , which leaves me to assume that Plaid fought a more concentrated campaign in the other 10.

So how did they do in the 10? Not easy to work out because count was done by councils areas.

Conwy Plaid second
Ynys Mon First
Rhondda (second in Rhondda Cynon Taf
Caerphilly  Third in Council Area
Carmarthen East and Dinefwr  second in council area  of Carmarthen but presumably First
Llanelli as above but unknown
Ceredigion First
Arfon (highly likely as part of Gwynedd) First
Dwyfor Meirionnydd as above

Neath Port Talbot Third

Its still a lot better than any of the mainstream parties and there's a possibility that Gwynedd had the highest percentage vote for a winning Remain party.

Taking the Tsunami that hit Wales as a result of the Brexit Party , Plaid will be more elated than the others.

But  it will need to win all ten target seats in the next Assembly Election  (and many more) if it is become the largest party in  Cardiff Bay.

But who know what the future hols for the next two years/
