Could i prime the walls and tile over the plaster or attempt to skim it first.

Depending on your skill level... tiling on an uneven surface requires a lot more care and attention than tiling on a flat surface.

Apart from the normal tiling tools you will need a true and flat batten to check the tiles are all flush to the wall as you go...
