About this mod

This mod switches the Ui Neill banner for the Uladh banner. The banner for the Ui Neills clan has always been the Red hand of Ui Neill/O'Neill which LATER became the flag/banner of ulster. After the Ui Neill takeover. But this was never patched.

Hi guys. So this mod switches the Uladh banner for the Ui Neill banner.

The banner for the Ui Neills clan has always been the Red hand of Ui Neill/O'Neill which later became the flag/banner of ulster.
This is an oversight from the VC devs, which I've told them about over a year and a half ago, they ran it through the ''historian'' which he confirmed but it never got patched, for whatever reason.

So here it is, my first mod ever.

The O'Neill family is the oldest family name in Eire, possibly in the world.  With it's origins dated to around 300AD. The bloodlines are dated back further as High Kings of Eire for thousands of years.

A snippet from the family hall of the University of Notre Dame
The origin of the legend of the “Bloody Red Hand of O’Neill” is lost in the mists of history, but most stories recount brave Celtic chieftains, in several boats, rowing across the northern Atlantic, where they caught sight of the beautiful green coastline of a land that today we call Ireland. These chieftains were proud rivals, and after a conference at sea in which they could not decide who would become lord of the land, they came to a decision that the first of them to touch the land with his hand would claim it as his reward. The furious race narrowed to two boaters, and Niáll, seeing his rival edging ahead, made a decision. He pulled out his battle-axe, severed his left hand, and with his right hand threw it to shore, thus claiming the land as his for his descendents forever. The name O’Neill derives from “uá Niáll,” “the descendents of the champion” as the clan of Niáll was called. Indeed these O’Neills reigned over large parts of Ireland until the English began to invade in the early 1600s.

The bloody left hand of the O’Neill clan predates the advent of formal heraldry, which was introduced by the Normans in the 11th century, and is recorded on the battle standards of the uá Niáll clan as early as the 5th century.

Today many consider those of the name O’Neill the rightful heirs to the title The High King of Ireland.
