Subject: Re: [DNA] Comparing Irish Clades

I've received no response to my note below, which I gather means no one
thinks my idea is a good one. Can someone perhaps explain the folly of my
approach and suggest some other way to investigate the concept?

Subject: [DNA] Comparing Irish Clades
Has anyone compared any of the recognized Irish clades - NWI, South Irish,
Type III, to see how long ago they would have had a common ancestor? ? I
know these three are not the only ones, but they may be the largest.
What would be an appropriate methodology - would you use the modal haplotype
for each or take a selection of members of the clades. Would you compare
each to the other separately or all three together?
I know choice of mutation rates and years per generation and which loci are
chosen will make a difference - perhaps a considerable one - but even the
relativity of age would be interesting. Which is the youngest, I wonder?
Thanks for any advice.
