If I go to Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages and set the
languages to Welsh I don't get Welsh spell checking, because I don't have
the Welsh spelling support (if you have that you will see a blue tick with
ABC above it when you select Welsh as the Default Language for Documents)
but neither do I get red underlines because it thinks I am writing in
English.  You should only get English spell checking if you have English as
the Default Language for Documents.

I have the Welsh language packs for Ubuntu and the libreoffice-l10n-cy
package which pull in all the Welsh for the interface descriptions.
Unfortunately, aspell-cy will not give you Welsh spell checking in LO  but
it will in gedit text editor!  So you could write stuff in the text editor,
correct the spelling, and copy into LO - OK, rather a dumb suggestion.
