Certainly the Irish I1c samples have DYS385 14,15 or 15,15 or 15,16
or 15,17, and "high" 393 *14 or *15. DYS388 is usually *13.Last
year I thought it was group G.
I1c doesn't seem to have a cultural / linguistic / area on which to
hypothesise an invasion or ethnic group. It's been in the British
Isles since before 1AD but some Norse or Anglo-Saxons must have
brought it west as well. Useful for genealogy as it is rare.
