    What about R-Y4010?

    23andme tells me my paternal haplogroup is R-Y4010, which is a sub-branch of the very common, in Western Europe, R-M269 (a R1b one).

    23andme tells me R-Y4010 is relatively common. However, when I try to find some information about it (especially, its regional distribution) I cannot find anything.

    Is there anybody who knows a bit about R-Y4010?

    My 23andme shows:

    Attachment 11739

    with the bottom right hand corner big blob corresponds to R-Y4010 (R-M269 is further to the upper left hand corner, but I could not make an image including all the subclades).

    And then wikipedia states, for Haplogroup R-M269:

    R-L226 This subclade within R-L21 is defined by the presence of the marker L226, also known as S168. Commonly referred to as Irish Type III, it is concentrated in central western Ireland and associated with the Dál gCais kindred.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_R-M269

    Does that mean that my paternal haplogroup is mostly an Irish one? I know R-M269 has a high prevalence in Ireland, but in Mediterranean Spain, too, so I thought that my R-M269 would probably be a standard Mediterranean Iberic one. But from what wikipedia says, it seems a mostly Irish one. Or could it be that, despite being R-L226 an Irish one, it has also some prevalence in Mediterranean Iberia?

    I am interested about this, since 23andme tells me that I have a British & Irish ancestry between 4 and 7 generations ago (between 1860 and 1770, approx.). So, could it be that my paternal haplogroup comes from that "relatively new" British & Irish ancestry? Or is my R-M269 / R-Y4010 just coming from a more standard Mediterranean Iberian haplogroup?

    I have found a partial answer to my question:

    Attachment 11741

    In figure 75 of the book Ancestral Journeys by Jean Manco, which I am enjoying quite a lot. The conclusion is: R1b-L21 is rare in Iberia, but not at 0%. So, this does not help me much.
