The most recent YFull haplotree (http://yfull.com/tree/N-Y6503/) divides the former N-P189 into two levels, N-P189 and an upstream predecessor N-Y6503. Since I myself have not encountered any Y6503+ P189- , I asked Vladimir Tagankin of YFull for an explanation of the division. He replied:
Sample: IR1
Hungary, Ludas-Varjú-dűlő (Iron Age, Pre-Scythian Mezőcsát Culture)
Age: 830-980 BC

In other words, sample IR1 from the Greater Hungarian Plain of the 9th-10th century B.C. belongs to the predecessor clade of N-P189. In contrast, none of the Hungarian samples in that study (http://www.nature.com/ncomms/2014/141021/ncomms6257/fig_tab/ncomms6257_T1.html) belonged to R1a, R1b, or N-Tat.
