The R-L226 Y-DNA Project - Irish Type III
In November 2009, the FTDNA Walk The Y project discovered a new SNP, L226, that has since been found in all members of the Irish Type III haplogroup that have tested to date. A comprehensive website exists that has much information on this interesting Dalcassian haplogroup. See:- Irish Type III website link above.
This haplogroup originated in the counties of Clare, Tipperary and Limerick around the time of King Brian Boru who lived, 926 - 1014.
