    I think it is South Munster Sikeliot. Do you agree?

    The Morrigan (also Mórrigan or Morrigu) is one of the most mysterious figures in Irish mythology.
    The name Morrigan means 'phantom queen' (or 'great queen') and describes a Goddess from old Ireland that was very associated with war, destiny, fate and death.
    She was a shape-shifter and frequently appeared as a black crow, an ominous sign for those who saw her prior to battle. Legend has it that the Morrigan was in fact a triad of sisters, often named as Badb, Macha and Nemain, while the Morrigan is also remembered as the triad of the land Goddesses Ériu, Banba and Fódla.

    Yes. I didn't see anything particularly 'isolate' about the North Leinster/Ulster cluster.

    It looked to me like, as far as distance from Britain went, it looked like the closest was South Leinster and Wexford (places like Kilkenny, Wicklow, etc) > Central Leinster > Connacht and North Munster > North Leinster/Ulster but then it looked like South Munster and Cork were separated on the dendrogram from all the rest.

    There is a new paper coming out shortly about Scotland and the islands by Ed Gilbert and the IDA team. Someone at a talk from Ed Gilbert said this:



    Looking forward to this.
    I bet when they said Borders they really meant from the east side south of Lammermuir or Pentland. A low population area, but it is culturally like England.

    Where the west border historically was an historical battlefield of border reivers and many of those people have ties to Dumfries & Galloway and Northern Ireland.

    Then you have the central belt. Populated mainly since the 18th century, could be a mix of sorts of Scots with Irish ancestry. So again could be like the Northern Irish in DNA.

    Central Scotland to Tayside will be interesting, one to watch. I'd also like to see places in Sutherland & Caithness compared to Orkney
