    Is the map not highlighting Shropshire? I haven't seen too many Irish results, it'd be great to see Irish maps to see what regions are plotted out in Great Britain! It'd probably help with this query.

To me the plot positions paint an incredibly obvious picture, those incomers left a small dent at best, but people see what they want to see with this stuff so i’ll leave it to you.
    Coming across this site, the post-Gael influence on Irish should be really limited, but still significant probably:

    Autosomally, no big leaps expected anyway. Kind of strange that Viking should be lower than Norman.

    My British map zoomed in.


    Shropshire is beside Wales so the ancestor could still be Welsh.

    If you think 23andme is a waste of money for British isles people, just imagine what a waste of money it is for South Asian people (who are very seriously undersampled). Hahaha that's not very helpful - sorry. Just thinking out loud.

    In a word - yes. But in some ways they all are, I haven't learned much new about myself from testing, not that I was really expecting to.

    I don't want to pay $150 or whatever it is just to be told my ancestry is from the British Isles, from Greater London and County Dublin - like everyone else apparently.

    It looks like, perhaps, the welsh was ruled out, in favor of possibly an English ancestry there. Although it looks like perhaps we have more English than we thought? Or, if I am understanding some interpretation of the more post-industrial stuff, does this look more like Irish immigration to England? Looking for some eyes other than my own.

    Is that just yours or your grandparent. What is your other ancestry?

    Where people went or ancestry from other places can just overwhelm possible ancestry without excluding it in the 23andMe regional things.

    I think it's worth it because of all the different tools they offer.

    Well I have my results, drumroll:



    You guessed it, 99.9% British Isles and 0.1% Somalia!

    Here are my United Kingdom and Ireland regions:

    Ireland - Highly Likely match

    1. Donegal (yes)
    2. Mayo (no)
    3. Dublin (no)
    4. Cork (no)
    5. Galway (no)
    6. Sligo (no)
    7. Kerry (no)
    8. Leitrim (no)
    9. Cavan (no)
    10. Leitrim (no)

    United Kingdom - highly likely match

    1. Glasgow City.
    2. Greater London.
    3. Merseyside.
    4. Belfast.
    5. Tyne and Wear.
    6. Greater Manchester.
    7. West Midlands.
    8. Edinburgh.
    9. North Lanarkshire.
    10. West Yorkshire.

    To me this isnít very accurate as I have next to no connections outside Ulster. I suppose they have to pick ten regions though donít they?

    So is it a waste of money? Kind of, the haplogroup information is useful and very accurate. But the autosomal results basically tell me that Iím from the British isles.
