    Gene Study: Irish DNA Has Middle Eastern, Russian Roots

    TEHRAN (FNA)- Irish DNA originates in the Middle East and southern Russia, from where settlers brought ceramics and cattle as well as the genetic features of brown hair and blue eyes, scientists discovered.

    Scientists from Belfast and Dublin have analyzed remains found in ancient tombs in Ireland to get a broad picture of migration to the country.

    They used genetic evidence from the body of a woman who lived around 5,000 years ago and was buried near Ballynahatty, close to Belfast, and the remains of three men who lived between 3,000 and 4,000 years ago in Country Antrim.

    Based at Trinity College Dublin, the experts traced ancient migration patterns using a method called whole-genome analysis, which examines where people came from genetically rather than at their personal DNA characteristics.

    Testing confirmed the modern Irish are descended from Stone Age people from the pre-biblical Middle East and migrants from southern Russia.

    The Middle Eastern wanderers displaced the native tribes and brought with them cereal, agriculture, cows and the feature of dark hair and brown eyes.

    Later settlers with copper working skills arrived from the steppes of southern Russia, bringing a tolerance for milk in adulthood, blue eyes and the inherited blood disorder haemochromatosis – which is common enough in Ireland to be known as Celtic disease.

    It is thought parts of that ancient Russian language are still used in modern Irish.

    Dan Bradley, a professor of population genetics at Trinity College, told the Guardian: “There was a great wave of genome change that swept into Europe from above the Black Sea into Bronze Age Europe and we now know it washed all the way to the shores of its most westerly island.”

    “And this degree of genetic change invites the possibility of other association.

    IMHO
    Of course there was no Ryzh Russians in that Crimean/Black Sea area at the time

    In repsonse the Tuatha de Danann prior to the Celts were beileved as their name i plies to have been Greek or Levantine.
    1997 research showed they arrived from Iberia, about half Basque genes and the rest from Asturias and Galicia,Lusitania along the Atlantic Arc.

    The population of Iberia 4,000 years agao very different to today.DNA work and more excavations will help us map the ethnogeography.

    Loath to admit Siam of course has only had Tai johnny come latelys recently, suppose better than Johnny come prematurely.There were Srijaya,bramin,Mon<Khmer and many others wandering around and therefore Thais should pay the falang entry as they do in my bathroom or a driving lesson !
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    The evidence is irrefutable, Patrick.
