    I found a workaround (kind of) for those still having this issue.
    In my game Ciara was still waiting at Tara, while Barid was standing at the stables in Dublin. I just spent around 2 hours-ish pushing Barid to the destination with dodge/roll, and that fixed the issue for me.
    Beware that you are unable to dodge/roll while in Tara, so you have to push Barid a little further than the destination, so that when he walks back to Dublin, he walks close enough to Ciara to trigger the cutscene.
    Good luck!

    @tyrogoeth Good lord. I don't think I have the patience to do that.

    Went to just onto the new DLC Wrath of the druids chapter 1 and when I started the Flann over Ireland where you have to escort ciara and bárid I noticed that he doesn’t move from the stables I’ve tried to reload the game plenty of time and it doesn’t seem to work is there going to be an update for this at some point

    Thank you for sharing your additional reports of this issue, and welcome to Discussions, @Xx1eeBxX and @DEMONIKUS99! It is appreciated that you have taken the time to post here and notify us that this issue is affecting you both as well. Could you possibly both confirm the platform(s) that you play Assassin's Creed Valhalla on?

As soon as we have any updates to share, we'll be sure to update this megathread.

    Just had this issue two days ago. I rode with Ciara all the way to Tara, Barid never followed. Went back to Dublin and Barid was sitting on his horse not moving and I could not progress any further. I tried the usual fast travel to a distant location>manual save> load game in hope it would reset the NPCs but no luck. I then found under load game an autosave that took place right after you dunk Ciara in the water to sober her up. I loaded the game, Ciara starts walking me to the stables and I made sure to let both Ciara and Barid get on their horses and start riding before I got on my horse. I then rode a little bit behind them all the way to Tara, problem solved. I'm on PS4 so not sure if other platforms will work the same. Hope this helps somebody else, it was incredibly frustrating.

    I know you all have known about this issue for awhile now. Any chance this is getting fixed? Several months on this issue seems a bit silly. For me Barid is sitting at the stables while Ciara has moved to the quest location at Tara. I cannot speak to Ciara currently. I have done a plethora of things to fix this to no avail. I have reset the game, travelled back to England and then back to Ireland, I even killed his horse to see if that would reset Barid. Is there an update coming soon that will fix this??? Just seems like you have been sitting on this issue for awhile…
    I am currently playing on PS4.

    Hello there!

    @Always_tryan - Thank you for taking the time to share your report with us regarding "Flann Over Ireland," and for letting us know that reloading earlier saves allowed you to progress further with this quest. I'm glad to hear that you've been able to complete the quest! 😄 Hopefully these steps help other players who are experiencing the issue in their own game.

    @Neamis - I'm sorry to hear that you've encountered trouble with "Flann Over Ireland." The development team had hoped to resolve this issue with a fix that was deployed in TU 1.2.2. The investigation into this issue was reopened following reports that the issue still persisted for some players following this Title Update. I'd like to assure you that the development team are investigating what could be potentially causing this issue with "Flann Over Ireland" further.

    We don't yet have any updates to share regarding fixes at this time. As soon as we have any new information to share from the development team, we will let you know within this thread and in the News & Announcements forum.

    @ubi-mark Hello,
    I'm also having issues with this.
    Barid is stuck at the stables and does not join Ciara at the ceremony.

    @ubi-smash my saves have all uploaded to the cloud. I can't bare to revert to previous saves as I'll lose over 100 hours of play.

    @ubi-borealis I've collected everything else in Ireland and about 95% of the rest of the game.
    Any idea how long until this bug is fixed as it creates a complete stalemate for the game.

    Still having issues with this quest. Baird stays at the stable and won’t move. Even after the recent update it’s still not working. I haven’t been able to progress in the DLC for over a month. PLEASE JUST FIX THIS ISSUE

    I am Having the same problem and nothing is more frustrating than after 3 months being asked by Ubisoft, what have you done to troubleshoot this issue? All I can wonder is the same in reverse what is going on here with the lack of support with troubleshooting on the developers end. Every year it seems game companies this large overstep by ignoring the fan base and community by making us pay for a product that wont even work, shame. This wouldn't be as bad if the issue if the game wasn't unplayable to a lot of the player base, you would think this would be max level issue that needs a quick hot fix and turn around but no 3 months later we get an update today July 27th and it still wont let me start.

    Still having same issue as others but now Baird won't stop looking through the bushes for who killed his horse (it was me, I killed your horse a month ago cause you refused to move). Why can't the fix be as easy as 'if player leaves Ireland before completing the escort section both NPCs spawn back at the stables'. This is how all the other quests seem to work when leaving the area before completing a step

    @trevor655 Same for me . . . Post update the "Flann over Ireland" quest is still broken. Ciara is waiting at Tara for the ceremony and Barid is still at the stables. No idea what to do at this point since I have cleared everything else on the map.

    Hey everyone,

    I'd like to open this post by reiterating that the issues with Barid and Ciara not meeting for the coronation in "Flann Over Ireland" remain under investigation by the development team at the moment. For now, no additional images, videos or save games are needed, as the team has acquired enough to conduct their investigation. As such, we will continue to update this megathread with new information as soon as any is provided to us. Thank you all for your continued understanding while the team investigates these issues and works on finding a fix. 🙂

    @oxford3lly - Welcome to Discussions! Thank you for replying to this megathread, and letting us know that you are experiencing this issue with "Flann Over Ireland". As I've stated above, the team are currently investigating these reports and we'll provide an update as soon as we can. In the meantime, if you have any other quests or content to complete, it may be worth progressing there while the investigation is ongoing. If you do not have a previous save to revert back to, then that is unfortunately not a viable workaround in your case. We'll keep you updated here in the thread!

    @SuP3RMaN92, @TREVOR655, @TappedSiefer, @OHMS_LAW28 & @BlayerB - We do not yet have an ETA for a fix, as the investigation is still ongoing into these issues. We will keep this megathread updated with the latest updates we receive from the development team as to their progress. Thank you for your understanding in the meantime. 🙂 If you do have any other content left to play through or collectibles to find, it may be worth pursuing these in the meantime. You may also - as time consuming as it is - try the workaround previously shared earlier in the thread by @Tyrogoeth if you wish, to see if this also works for you. I appreciate that that isn't an ideal solution however, and would like to reassure you that a proper fix is being investigated. Thanks!
