    I used AncestryDNA raw data too. Anyway, yeah, most Irish people have some English admixture and/or Scottish admixture that is part of the reason why the Irish are so distinctive looking because if they were part German or Dutch or French they would look less distinctive IMHO. What I mean by less distinctive is more continental looking. I think LivingDNA is picking up real English and Scottish admixture in your case.

    I would guess the Welsh also look less continental compared most of the British Isles. A more old school population.

    Welsh invaded Ireland too mostly during the Norman era they were known as Cambro-Normans. I would guess Welsh left the least impact though.

    The only knock on Living DNA is that it doesn't seem to have Irish regions like AncestryDNA and 23andMe

    That is because AncestryDNA targets American users who think Ireland is this super special place with a super significant political and historical history when it reality Ireland is a marginal backwater. To be fair though LivingDNA only does English, Scottish and Welsh regions because it is a British company not American company and Irish people are not British. Let me guess AncestryDNA gave you some percentage of Scandinavian too ? LOL

    Americans are ignorant of geography and history so they think Ireland is more important than it is.

    Are you proud of your own Irish heritage?

    Not really. The problem with these commercial tests is they breakdown your ancestry but don't give you a single closest population like GEDmatch and G25. I consider myself Scottish because mainland Scots are halfway genetically between the native Irish/Welsh on the onehand and the British/Germanics on the otherhand but there is no one Scottish genetic cluster there are like 6 or 7 with the certain parts of Western Scotland being more 'Irish' than other parts. That is because the Irish founded Scotland by colonizing Dal Riada :

    I upgraded by paying for it and there was an update too. I'm not sure if the update is available to non-paying customers.
