think there was no pict influence in Munster? There was. What does
matter was the time period in which the genealogies were written down
and the influences of that time and who wrote them down, and at that
time the daughters were dropped out. As far as DNA tracking goes, it
is vital to know this, and thus the genealogies are not to be trusted
as we commonly see them with no daughters shown. It is also important
to understand that many tribes take their name from a daughter, not a
You can ignore what I am saying if you like, but you will never
