    Yes, you are right they could have been Norse Gaels. I didn't think about that.

So for example if such a theoretical lineage spilt 2,500 years ago and was found in men with purely a northern England origin. This could imply that the history of lineage was tied to Northern Britain and from there expanded into Ireland (post 2,500 years ago). In which case you could theorise that such expansion was to do with renewed contacts between Northern half of Ireland and Northern Britain in period after 300BC (as seen in archaeological record)
    It would be so nice if we found a substantial number of ancient skeletons that had the M222 block in Ireland or the British Isles, or, if like you mentioned earlier, we found a lineage that could break that block.
