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

moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are.


Thanks for the report, looks like it was a good game!

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
