I meant that FTDNA does not test for S21, which is the true SNP for R1b1c9.

At 67 markers, within a GD of 19, CAAGC has only 3 neighbors:
9JKHQ, unknown origin, GD 10
Y34QR, Kilconnell/Ballyglass, Ireland, GD 11
54QSN, Galway, Ireland, GD 12
Note that there are no neighbors at GDs of 13-19. In R1b1c, by far the most
populated haplogroup, an absolute lack of neighbors across such a range
looks like a genetic chasm to me. In other words, these 4 men appear to
have their own cluster, pretty far away from everyone else. The nearest
neighbors outside the British Isles are at GDs of 23 and beyond, and come
from across Atlantic Europe. In other words, these guys look like they've
been in Ireland a long, long time.
Put in other terms, this cluster shows some distinguishing marker values:
DYS393 = 12
DYS385b >= 15
YCAIIb = 22
DYS442 = 11
DYS406S1 >= 11
DYS534 = 14
DYS617 = 13
