L226 is positive for all 21 Irish Type III who have tested.

There are also 20 non-Irish Type III who all tested negative.

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 ?
