one year un flwyddyn
two years dwy flynedd
three years tair blynedd
four years pedair blynedd
five years pum mlynedd
six years chwe blynedd
seven years saith mlynedd
eight years wyth mlynedd or blynedd

3. Blwydd (oed) is used after numbers to mean 'years old' with the same mutation pattern as above.

4. Blynyddoedd is the plural of blwyddyn and is restricted to cases where 'years' isn't used with a number, e.g. 'flynyddoedd yn ol' - 'years ago'.
