Probably right,as in the next book he has him sitting in a banquet at a castle in the Highlands having a yarn in Gaelic.

The castle belonged to some women he was supposed to have a bit of a fling with. His wife, Lady Ulster, was incarcerated at the time by Edward.

No harm in poetic licence,but I think he could have shown a wee bit more continuity as regards the language bit.

I got the Stewart trilogy after that. Not bad either.

Bruces force in Ireland.

When Bruce's forces left Ireland they left a void ( In land they took from the English that is) that was then taken up by Irish Chieftains/Lords and remained in Irish hands for many years after that. Bruce going to Ireland, in the long run, worked out well for the Irish.
