Bug with escorting characters and barid. Characters walked back to Dublin. Barid remains at the stables.

Initial play, found Caira completed brawl then escorted her to hilltop to her tent, but Barid did not follow
Now the mission has reset itself
Found Ciara - she is silent not singing or drunk (i.e. you see facial expression no movement) so she can't progress because the brawl scene is not triggering as it's been completed
Barid is still at stables but won't mount horse, his horse and himself can't be touched or moved.
So, cant progress on the first chapter in the storyline.

@rphilipson i have same bug, and all the auto saves go back to a state with the quest not launchable with Ciara back in Dublin sitting and no way to start the conversation with her. The only manual save i can go back to is from January with 40 hours of gameplay and multiple items lost, so…. Hoping there’s a fix soon.

I have a game breaking bug that has happened to me during the escort mission part of this quest, first I escorted ciara but barid didn't follow, when I got back to Dublin he was just sitting on his horse doing nothing. So I restarted the game, went back to a previous load but when I did, ciara was just sitting at the inn, and barid was still in the same spot. So I did it again, to my last save available, and they were still in the same spot, there was no way to fix it on my end.

Same issue - started playing the DLC last night, PS5. They're are literally hundreds of reports of this on Reddit currently, even a number of videos posted about how to avoid it happening (although no fix once it's actually broken).
I'm not redoing what other things I've done. I'm not touching this DLC until they've fixed this one.

Playing the mission Flann over Ireland only Ciara follows me and Badir stays in the stables. After a while, she goes back to the table she was at the beginning and cannot interact with her. I have no previous saving and I’ve seen in Reddit that many people is in the same situation. Is it being investigated? We cannot continue the story!

Still unable to proceed.
I've merged together several threads about the issue with "Flann Over Ireland" together into a single megathread. Creating a single thread helps us to keep all information and updates from an investigation in a single place. I apologise if any ongoing discussion was disrupted by this merge.
The development team have been notified that players are encountering issues when escorting Ciara or Barid to the stables, and they are investigating this further. I've passed on all the reports that have been shared with us in this thread to the development team as part of the ongoing investigation.
If you have been affected by this issue, can you please let us know whether it is Barid or Ciara who is not following Eivor to the stables?
If you are able to provide any additional video footage of the issue happening in-game, this will also be very helpful to the investigation.
@Viddovich - Would you be able to ensure that you have an up-to-date save uploaded to the cloud? We can then notify the development team so this can be used as part of the ongoing investigation.
@Acedyn22 - Thanks for sharing those images with us. I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble posting your video in the forums. I would recommend uploading it to a sharing platform (such as YouTube or Google Drive) then sharing an unlisted link in this thread. We can then pass this along to the development team as well for a closer look.
@kaiage81 & @Nordrir - Would you be able to let us know which NPC doesn't follow you as part of the "Escort" quest?
@Kaithechecker - Thank you for providing us with a video! I've shared this with the development team.

@ubi-borealis I also was experiencing this issue.
Described the problem here: https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/98236/wrath-of-the-druids-dlc-issues
Now my problem is I can't interact with the trial of the Morrigan in Meath (probably I shouldn't do it then, but how is that my fault...).

@ubi-borealis at the beginning is Barid the one who stays at the stables and Costa follows. But after a while or dying, Barid stays at the stable and Ciara appears on the table of the bar where you meet her for the first time. No interaction is possible with either of them.
In my case Barid doesn’t even have a horse anymore as I killed it trying to fix it (sorry! ).
Please fix it, the game cannot be continued without it!
@bielik01 - Thank you for sharing your report with us. I'm sorry you had to start the expansion over to proceed past this quest. Thanks for updating us.
Would you be able to start a new thread about the issue you're encountering the the Trial of the Morrigan? We can then investigate this issue separate to "Flann Over Ireland." Please include a video that shows you're unable to interact with the Trial, as well as your exact location on the map.
Feel free to tag me in your new thread, and I'll check it out as soon as I'm able to.
@sajimces - Thanks for providing us with some more information. I've added this to your report to the development team. Rest assured that they are looking into this issue further. Once we have any new updates to share, they will be posted within this thread.

cant get the flann of Ireland to work. Barid won’t move and Ciara is just sitting at the pub. Don’t have a previous save to reload. Help.
I've merged some more posts into this thread so we can keep all reports in one place. I apologise if this has caused any confusion.
Thank you for continuing to share your reports with us regarding "Flann Over Ireland." The development team are investigating this issue further. If you have been affected by this issue, please can you provide us with the following information:
- Who isn't moving? Did Ciara leave for the coronation, or did Barid?
- Where are the NPCs positioned now?
- Can you please send us a video that shows the current position of these NPCs, and that they will not proceed to the coronation?
Please can you also ensure you have an up-to-date save uploaded to the cloud? We can then forward these to the development team as part of the ongoing investigation.
@VictoriousMD - Would you be able to provide us with all of the information requested above?
@Calamity54jane & @darwinultma1 - Thanks for letting us know where Barid and Ciara are now. Are you able to provide us with any additional videos?
