Thank you for these data. May be you don't have it at hand but it would be interesting to know also how many people tested these 4 SNPs downstream of L21 and were negative (the "true" L21*) ; the frequency of each subgroup could be estimated. Is L226 still the "Irish type III" SNP or is it encompassing a larger (or smaller) group ?
