  • Y-Chromosome haplogroup R-M222 R-M269 This is the ancestral lineage of the Uí Néill and Connachta dynasties.
  • Mitochondrial DNA haplogroup V18 This lineage attains its highest frequency (about 50 percent) in the Skolt Saami of Scandinavia, a group of hunter-gatherers who follow the reindeer herds seasonally from Siberia to Scandinavia and back. However, the Skolt Saami population has a lower diversity compared with that observed in West Europe, making it likely to have been introduced into this population within the past several thousand years.
