Really? I always fine alpines the easiest to distinguish. Anyway I don't know how accurate this site is, but it may help you tell differences. http://amorsite.110mb.com/index_files/Alpines.htm It didn't help me much. I still can't tell when it is applied to other people unless their features are described to me from somebody else.

Mostly reduced Irishmen.
Especially the man in the middle, that's the Irish mayor.

Luxembourg(85% alpine terrority):
You might see 2 or three of them in the last photo.
So while Luxembourg has a high population of alpine people, so does Ireland as well, but not as much.

Alpinids are not commonly found in Ireland.
They are mostly found in Switzerland, France and Austria.

A reduced/paedomorphized Irish Cromagnid type is metrically Alpinoid, though not Alpinid. Alpinids are the typical reduced/paedomorphized 'cromagnid' people form Central-Europe. According to some Anthropologists they can be divided in a western and eastern subtype.
The East-Alpinid (Gorid type) is characterized by a reduction of headlength what is somewhat compensated by a higher head. While the western subtype keeps the (relative) low vault and the reduction in headlength is to some degree compensated with a broader head.
Some posters here like Agrippa (et moi, to some degree) also see a Southern Alpinid(Berid) and Northern Alpinid (Borreby) type. The first is reduced and paedomorphized but still meso-dolichocephalic. While the last is a somewhat paedomorphized version of the large-vaulted original Faelid (the stereotype Cromagnid) with less headlength and a broader/higher vault.
