A short note. |
We now have a reasonable amount of evidence to say that Irish men bearing "Dunleavy" patronymics are quite often of a DNA type which is associated with the Ui Neill and North Western Ireland.
There are also others, including a hint that there are some with the DNA type more like that found in our chiefly family.
As more data builds up I suppose it will be interesting to try to establish whether we can divide the Dunleavys up into dynasties matching the potential Dunleavy patriarchs in Irish histories.
