About us

March 2023 - This section has been quiet for a while now.  Looking at what has been posted, I should point out that the recording of our October 2015 presentation at the Genetic Genealogy Ireland 2015 conference failed, and it was never loaded onto YouTube.  You can access the slide-show at https://www.dropbox.com/s/n41ap32fapmsxtz/The%20Munster%20Irish%20DNA%20Project%20-%20Oct%202015.pdf?dl=0.  We're delighted that the project has increased over a thousand since Feb 2013.  We are at 1260 at the moment!

August 2016 - RTE television launched a series 'John Connors: The Travellers'  - http://www.rte.ie/tv/programmes/thetravellers.html - and we were asked to assist with analyzing the DNA tests done on a number of the people in the program.  We were given acknowledgement of this in the credits of the episodes.

June 2016 - RTE television approached Elizabeth to assist with interpretation of DNA results for the testing of one of their presenters, John Creedon, for his series 'Creedon’s Epic East' - https://www.rte.ie/lifestyle/living/2016/0728/805447-john-creedons-epic-east/.
