I did a mini R1b Scotland, Ireland and Wales survey at one time with the results reported to the List so the info should be in the Archives. One thing that was striking was that the majority had matches (at the 8 to 12 marker level) to individuals from Spain and Portugal, however this was not the case for R1b from further east. It seemed to be a veritable Celtic - Ancient Briton indicator to have Iberian matches. I leave the interpretation to others.
