    i don't know but I have watched TV programs from France and I have to say that they look like the typical Irish-Iberian, could they have Celt DNA ?

    The Gauls were Celtic-speaking, the chances of modern French having celtic ancestry is ~99.9%. I think it's painfully obvious

    Modern Frenchmen (especially from North and North_West France) who posted their results on the dedicated threads are very close to the Hallstatt or England_Iron_Age ancient samples. So, yes, most of the native Frenchmen are the descendants of the Celtic-speaking Gauls. No doubts on that.

    This sentence is nonsensical.

    Yes. French people are a mix of Celtic and Germanic tribes + Italian / Spanish like people.

    There are areas of France where people other than Ceits were noted in early historical sources as the Med coast and Aquitainia. Plus small areas on its eastern fringes where Germanic settlement was more than just elite dominance. However it seems in the rest of France the Celts are the earliest known people’s to history. So I think they are the genetic bedrock of much of France except the south cosst, the south-west etc. Then of course the impact of being in the Roman Empire for 5 centuries had ah impact. But I would be surprised if pre-Roman Gauls were not genetically v similar to iron age isles people

    It would seem painfully obvious but it wouldn't be first time I've heard someone assume that because the Franks seemingly conquered Gaul that there were no longer any Gauls (or Gallo-Romans in that case). However as we all know, they were the overwhelming majority of the population of what was to become France.

    Probably some reference to old belief that the Irish are descended from Iberians? I am also confused as to what "Irish-Iberian" means here.

    Probably. There is still a lot of old crap floating around on the internet.
