Blood of the Irish: What DNA Tells Us About the Ancestry of People in Ireland

For a long time the myth of Irish history has been that the Irish are Celts. The latest research into Irish DNA has confirmed that the early inhabitants of Ireland were not directly descended from the Celts/Keltoi of central Europe. In fact the closest genetic relatives of the Irish in Europe are to be found in the north of Spain in the region known as the Basque Country. These same ancestors are shared to an extent with the people of Britain - especially the Scottish.
