Is Wales less interested in independence?

I don't really know much about Welsh politics, can anyone enlighten me please?
Scotland obviously has a strong base looking for independence and seem to guard devolution quite closely.
Northern Ireland obviously has its own identity and on-going identity crises (and still no assembly!)
Both Scotland and NI voted differently for Brexit whereas Wales voted with England. Is that reflective of Welsh politics being quite similar to English politics? Or is it just more reflective of the economy (I'm thinking of mining communities in areas of Wales and Northern England)
Is there a push for independence in Wales or is the majority happy with how devolution is working?

I'm bumping this old thread because I've just seen this

They can't do it. You can argue about the wrongs Wales has suffered for a long time, but the point is that there are too many people there for the economy to support. Anyone want a guess on what they're hoping to achieve through positioning?

A Celtic union of Wales, Ireland and Scotland might stand a chance, maybe?
