Did you add any more provinces to Ireland or Wales? It looks like you did in one of the screen shots from the Ireland campaign mod.

I'm afraid I have a bone to pick with this mod: Wales is not a Gaelic kingdom, and neither is it English. Wales, along with Britanny and Cornwall, was one of the last areas controlled by Britons. Celtic Kingdoms would probably be a more accurate name, as Gaelic means simply Irish.

Other than that, however, this is a great mod and just what I've been waiting for. I've already had a succesion of Welsh Crusader Kings.
