Opps  :-[  ;D   Well, it was close for quite a while and I was pleased that the scenario seemed to work well "straight out of the box".
Though much is taken, much abides; and though
we are not now that strength which in old days
moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are.

Definitely another goody :)

Taaffe had to focus very much on survival trading ground for time while MacColla's Redshanks and other foot did the damage

If a couple of Anglo-Irish flank attacks had managed to score some hits things could have gone very badly for the Confederates

A very interesting scenario with different challenges for each of the commanders

Well, this what should have happened! Great report and looks to be an interesting and well-balanced scenario.
