The fact the IPP doesn't even show up in 1918 is quite concerning, did their 'pact' with SF in some seats where the Unionists could win mean that the party was effectively wiped out in all but one seat in Ulster, Waterford City, and their GB mainland seat of Liverpool Scotland?
I usually don't include the IPP in 1918 because they're usually pushed into complete irrelevance by SF. So, that's not it.
I added bits last night but forgot to click 'Save Changes', so things should make a tiny bit more sense if you read on.
