    Y-dna and autosomal do not always correlate.

    You can lose the entire y-dna or mtdna trail of an invading group. To prove this I am going to use New World groups because I do not know how this would work for Ireland but try to follow along.

    The Dominican population is largely European on the paternal side, and African on its maternal side. Pretend that Irish was settled en masse by men from the Dominican Republic and mixed. You'd end up with Irish with large amounts of SSA DNA but no trace of it in their haplogroups.

    It's hardly surprising that Doyle though is actual Gaelic origin. The idea that it was a 'Norse surname' showed over-literalism when it came to translation. After all the word Dubhghall became a personal name, which is anglisced as Dugall. One of earliest references I can see of it been used as a personla name is the following in the Annals of Ulster:

    U914.3

    Niall son of Aed made an expedition into Dál Araidi in the month of June. Loingsech grandson of Lethlabar, king of Dál Araidi, came upon him at Fregabal and was defeated, and left behind on his retreat Flathruae grandson of Lethlabar, his kinsman. Aed son of Eochucán, king of the Province, and Loingsech, king of Dál Araidi, met them again at Carn Éirenn and were defeated. Cerrán son of Colman, chief of Cenél Maelchi, and the son of Allacán son of Laíchthechán, and others, were left behind. Aed, however, returning from the flight with a very few, and fiercely resisting during the flight, wiped out some of Niall's soldiers. His son Dubgall was wounded and escaped.
    ...
    U925.1
    Dubgall son of Aed, king of Ulaid, was killed by his own people.
    ..
    U980.5
    Dubgall son of Donnchad, heir designate of Ailech, was killed by his own kinsman, i.e. Muiredach son of Flann. Muiredach son of Flann was beheaded by his own sept before a full month had passed.
    These are high prestige individuals bearing it as a first name in the 10th century.

    It might not be complete though because I know there was a Viking settlement at Annagassan Co. Louth.

    http://www.linnduachaill.ie/news/

    There was also a Viking longphort at Knoxspark in Co Sligo and they found over 200 Viking graves there.

    http://www.independent.ie/regionals/...-27568729.html

    They were also present on Lough Ree on the River Shannon, Ireland, separating Counties Longford and Westmeath (east) from County Roscommon (west).

    http://www.askaboutireland.ie/learni...h-ree/vikings/

    Because of Ireland's river systems they could have been anywhere.

    Just adding that with the PoBI they had trouble picking up Danish Viking activity apparently because of the similarity to the Anglo-Saxons.

    Hopefully we will get a lot more information next month.
    Thanks Jessie for the interesting maps and links. I didn't know there was a Viking settlement in Sligo, interesting! To anyone who cares to answer this, is it possible that since Danish DNA is probably so similar to Anglo-Saxon DNA, that there could be a lot more Viking DNA in Ireland than is thought, because Danish Viking DNA probably can't be picked out from the DNA of the English very easily? However, it seems like most of the Vikings in Ireland were thought to be Norwegian.

    Thanks. I had thought it might be where known areas of Viking settlement were. One place I thought of was Dublin and the area near it.

    Ancient Irish Genomes=2
    3 matching Irish clusters within Europe
    NW France cluster

    Norse - Viking settlement

    Next presentation at GGI2017, Sunday Oct 22, 14:00.

    Very interesting keynote presentation from Professor Agnar Helgason on Icelandic DNA.

    I understand he is preparing an update on his previous papers on the subject.

    Heber, I thank you and I'm grateful to you for taking the notes and reporting them to us. Would you mind explaining please, what you meant by this,
    "3 shared British/Irish clusters (N.Ireland)"?

    What do you mean "shared"? Out of 10 geographic genetic clusters for Ireland/N. Ireland, 7 Gaelic Irish ones are in Ireland. However, that seems to imply the only genetic clusters in N. Ireland are the British/Irish clusters! So, I must be missing something somewhere. The POBI map showed the Gaelic Northern Irish/Western Scottish Highlander cluster with green triangles, in Northern Ireland and Western Scotland if I remember right.

    The only other thing I can figure out is if by "shared" you mean that the British/Irish clusters share autosomal DNA with the Gaelic Irish of Northern Ireland.

    They could just be calling all the clusters in Ireland proper "Gaelic Irish" regardless of who they plot with.
