The Ireland yDNA Project welcomes males who are doing or who have done a yDNA test and who also have Irish ancestry on their own paternal line. This includes yDNA Genographic conversion kits, as well. Please note that it is a yDNA Project only.

If you are already in a Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) Project, please use the "Join Projects" link on your personal webpage at FTDNA, if you wish to join this project. You will need to send us a request to join and we hope you will take the opportunity to tell us about your paternal line and why you want to join.

Check that you are doing or have done a yDNA test and that you have Irish lineage on your own paternal line.

The list of surnames presented here is from Pendar's 1659 list.

Don't worry if your surname is not listed, all men with irish ancestry on their paternal line are welcome to join the project provided they do a yDNA test.


Here is a link to Library Ireland's List of Irish Surnames and Clan Names as compiled by Rev. Patrick Woulfe in 1923.

The Smurfit Institute of Genetics did some research a few years ago and produced some interesting research papers under Professor Dan Bradley. has a list of publications.

The relevant papers include:
Genetic investigation of the patrilineal kinship structure of early medieval Ireland
The scale and nature of Viking settlement in Ireland from Y-chromosome admixture analysis (2006)
A y-chromosome signature of hegemony in Gaelic ireland (2006)
The Longue Duree of Genetic Ancestry: Multiple Genetic Marker Systems and Celtic Origins on the Atlantic Facade of Europe (2004)
