Most recent R-L270 SNP Map - a few outliers in the UK.
Here's an updated screenshot of the L270 haplogroup - mostly Sullivans/O'Sullivans and strongly Southwest Ireland. I didn't include areas outside of Ireland and the UK because there are no red circles anywhere else. If you have a Sullivan surname, I hope you are considering taking the $39 L270 SNP test.

Another Kennare photo.
Please note the Sullivan area's annotated in this map from 1906. Took a picture of this map at a museum in the town of Kenmare, Ireland.
This area in Maryland (USA) was one of the early centers for Sullivan migration from Ireland. There is to this day a tributary named for the Sullivan's. This map was made in the 1790's but there were Sullivan's here as early as 1695 according to local records.
This is James McDonald and his wife Alice Sullivan (Newfoundland, Canada) probably around 1970-75'ish.

My great great grandfather Timothy Sullivan who married Ellen Sullivan and family. They left Dursey Island and emigrated to Fall River, Massachusetts.
John William Sullivan, born 1852 Parish of Ross, Galway. Parents John J. Sullivan and Mary E. Thornton, both born in Ross parish. Pictured with his wife, Margaret Kilday, born 1858 in Portland, Maine. John immigrated in 1856 and was a store merchant and a saloon owner. They had 11 children. He came to the U.S. through New Brunswick with his parents and siblings, and they, like most immigrants started from scratch to make a living. He was the first Sullivan to own a home free of mortgage. Several of his children went on to Ivy League schools and one of his children became a Supreme Court Judge. I have been unable to trace any further back than his parents. Look familiar to anyone?! Thanks for letting me share. I'm proud of my great grandparents for their accomplishments!
