I received a report from someone attending Genetic Genealogy Ireland (in Dublin) where one of the speakers (Lara Cassidy) spoke about yet to be published research of roughly 100 Ancient/Medieval DNA results in Ireland. She reported where remains from a medieval cemetery in Roscommon (unknown to me whether this refers to the City of Roscommon, or somewhere in County Roscommon) has tested positive for Z351 (which is one of the SNPS at the Z8 clade level).

It was also reported where they hope to publish this research sometime in late 2020.

Any specifics on exactly what they mean by Medieval? Early, middle or late medieval?
