New Ireland

The Kingdom of Ireland (Ireland or Éire) is one of the three English-speaking nations of Renaissance Kingdoms, the others being the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland. Its counties are An Mumhain, Laighean, and Cúige Chonnacht. It also posesses several independent towns; Port LàirgeLios Mor and Imleach, the latter two of which were made independent following a war between the Celtic Alliance and An Mumhain.

It has often been said that Ireland is not for the weak and gutless - it will chew you up without even flinching.
