DNA and Irish Genealogy: Where to now?

Dr Maurice Gleeson

DNA testing has taken off in Ireland (and worldwide) in the past few years with over 14 million people in the databases. Several Irish initiatives have helped to spark this interest, including academic studies (such as the Irish DNA Atlas project), the Genetic Genealogy Ireland conferences (held in Dublin & Belfast), and the formation of the ISOGG Ireland group. But where is Irish genetic genealogy headed? And where will it be in 5 years time?
