    Any L2 People with Irish Roots?

    I'm just curious to know if any L2 tested people on here have male line ancestors from Ireland since I fall into this category myself but there seem to be relatively few L2 people with Irish roots.

    I've had no luck with my tests so far (SNP testing ruled out the few 12 marker matches) and it would be interesting to know if the Irish L2's cluster around a similar area perhaps?

    All U152 samples only make up 2% of the tested SNPs in the FTDNA projects

    If you haven't done so join the U152 project. There are quite a few Ireland L2s there including

    That's me there (or rather my ancestor I should say).

    Thanks for attaching the map, is that showing the distribution of L2 of U152?

    I'm quite surprised that U152 is only 2% of the Ireland Y-DNA Project, it would be interesting to know why the haplogroup is uncommon in Ireland and if this reason could help any of us stuck at brick walls.

    Well if we look at Busby M269 study which tested for U152 it comes in at 2.17% eg. 10 out of sample size of 460. As Dillon is a surname linked to Cambro-Norman's a U152/L2 result might reflect movement into Ireland post 1169.

    Thanks, that's an interesting theory that I'll keep in mind for my paper research. I don't match any of the Dillons in the Dillon surname project, or have any matches with anyone for that matter so I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for any possible clues as to where my Dillons came from. At the moment I'm stuck at the 1800 brick wall with a Patrick Dillon and his brother Luke whose Father (also Patrick) was a farmer somewhere in Ireland.

    Is this the Busby study you were referring to? http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.o...rspb.2011.1044

    William Patton and Moses Wright, they are in my class, it is likely to have originated in Liguria, Italy.

    Kit 129628 is R1b-L2 with Irish ancestry. (Dalton)
    Anything of interest there?

    Yes, I've noticed that as well. Comparing my DNA markers with his gives us a genetic distance of 31 and only 47 matching markers out of 67 (the highest level he has tested to) which seems to suggest that the similarity of surnames is just a coincidence?
