LOL my Grandpa from Clare stills says that about Dubliners especially his cousins the Driscols. Sorry if it offends anyone. One of my oldest memories is of him saying that. On a side note the National Geographic Society has a genome project that shows where you came from geneticly thousands of years ago. I think Oxford and a few other places offer it too. Mine just came by post so who knows what dark secrets it will show. As far as I know moms side is all from Cork and Clare all the way back and Who knows on my dad. His grandparents came from Down. They are Scots Irish. I am interested to see where 1,000 generations ago came from.

What does it entail? A blood/hair follicle sample or something more complex? What do they use as the representative markers? It sounds really interesting.

Here is the link on the project. The box came with a cool DVD telling more info on how Native Americans and Siberians are very similar etc. It also looked at the various people of the world and the creation stories vs what the study has shown on who is related to who and how far back.

Eh!! How about 'the Book of Invasions' Which has been passed down through the ages as an oral history! Fir Bolg, Tuatha DeDanaan,etc! I believe in the final batttle the Milesians( Celts) were given the above the ground and and the Tuatha DeDanaan were given the land below and became the fairy folk!

and the funny part is the Milesians came from Spain, so does that make us spanish? (then why aren't we good at football? :shock: )

Hey speak for your self I made honnors at soccer (football) my nephew Connor is on a kids pro team at 9. lol. I think I dated one of those Tuatha de Dannaan ladies once. Note to self do not get dates while at a science fiction convention. The above does bring up a good point. Almost every group has a story of how they traveled to where they live now. How many groups have a great flood story or stories of the gods appearing in one form or another. It can show how close we are to being the same.

I believe you are correct. Oh and I do have dark hair but its getting lighter with the grey in it now lol. U of Oxford did a study of the UK 2 years ago showing most there had Irish blood to some degree. I believe they expected more Scandinavian and German markers.

Wow. There is quite a lot of information even if you don't get the kit. Pity there isn't more about Ireland though.
