Here is the map of the Iberian admixture. I am sure there must be a gradient somewhere in Southwest Spain, but I'll need more regional data.

I've done a spreadsheet and averaged the % for 43 people that have fully Irish ancestry. When averaged there is very little other than overwhelmingly British & Irish.

Here is the breakdown.

Irish = n43

British & Irish 94.87%
French & German 0.77%
Scandinavian 0.30%
Finnish 0.01%
Broadly Northwestern European 3.4%

Iberian 0.00%
Ashkenazi 0.02%
Broadly Southern European 0.1%
Broadly European 0.4%
Unassigned 0.0%

I have a spreadsheet with all the percentages.

Thank you, Elisabeth. That's very helpful. Do you know if there is any significant difference by region? I would think that Ulster probably has more French & German due to the Lowland Scots, while Dublin or Wexford might have more Scandinavian?
 
Sorry I don't have specific regions. I did notice that the person with the lowest British & Irish was from Dublin. I think most of the people I share with are from the more country regions and there are about 3 from Donegal in there but all the people I added had stated that all their grandparents were Irish. There were quite a few with <0.1% Native Amerindian and East Asian and a couple with 0.1% but the people with 0 negated those trace amounts.

I have the full spreadsheet with all the breakdown. The lady from Dublin the highest amount of French & German with 4.7% and my mother was next with 4.6% and she is from Munster. What is very noticeable is the high amount of British & Irish that people get. The people that I have from Donegal appear to get the highest British and Irish with 98.1% and 98.4%. I'm sure if there was a large study you would find places like Dublin having lower amounts of British & Irish and the northwest having the higher amounts of British & Irish.
 
Here is a table based on the results I have already received.

If you get Ashkenazi results could you perhaps inquire as to whether their ancestors were Eastern Ashkenazi or Western, and compare? Would be interesting as I don't think there are any studies on this.

I think the 23andme reference population for British contains Scandinavian, as I'd expect it to be way higher, surely.

Don't be fooled by the labels. Real Scandinavian autosomal DNA includes a mixture of what 23andMe calls Broadly Northwest European, Scandinavian and even a small part of the British & Irish. The Scandinavian peaks in the population at the border of Norway and Sweden. Danes have as much 'Broadly Northwest European' as 'Scandinavian', and so the Anglo-Saxons would have had about 2 or 3 times as much 'Broadly Northwest European' as 'Scandinavian'. That's why there is so much more 'Broadly Northwest European' in Britain today. I have explained what is really behind the misleading 23andMe labels in the map descriptions here. It's odd that the got the South European admixtures to fix pretty well with the labels, but mixed up completely the Northwest European ones.

Holy Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich, you and 23andme have outdone yourselves in the updates Congratulations. As with Elizabeth, I apologize also for my ancestry is not specific to a certain population. However I'm curious, why is the admixture "Broadly European" in every European; what ancient civilization was 50%-100% Broadly European? Do you know what country/region the "broadly European" admixture peaks at? :)

Broadly European might represent shared Paleolithic or Mesolithic European ancestry. It is even found a bit in North Africa and the northern Middle East.

Here is a map of the Broadly South European admixture. Not sure what it represents yet. It might be Neolithic farmer ancestry, or nothing definable.

^ Thanks. Interesting. Southern Spain, Northern Italy, Moldova seem to be hot spots. The English areas might indicate Roman association. Looks to be just EEF...

Here is the map of East European admixture. I would need more data from East Germany, Czechia, Austria, Slovenia, Estonia, northern Russia, Moldova, the Volga-Ural region, the Caucasus and Turkey to work out the gradients.

Here are my Czech samples, but most of them are from Northeastern Moravia where my 23andme matches come from. I would describe ancestry of this region as more Slavic than most of the country. In last 500 years it was under clear genetic influence of two foreign groups of peoples. First are Sudeten Germans (almost everyone I know from there has some more or less distant German in his/her family tree). From 16th century it was also influenced by Vlachs, highland pastoralists with original Balkan-like and East Slavic-like culture. They originated in Balkan highlands (Northern Greece, Bulgaria, Romania) where are now called Aromuns, but they mixed with aborigines through their journey along Carpathian Mountains. Their influence is evident from culture of eastern Moravia, linguistics (eastern Slavic and Romanian-like dialect), average physical appearance (dinaroid or „east slavic“ facial structure uncommon in Bohemians or other Moravians, higher stature, more frequent darker skin) and haplogroups (I2a1b, J2, E, R1a). But I think Vlachs were in fact more East Slavic than Balkanic autosomally.
Please interpret my results as Moravian and not generally Czech, I think Bohemians would score different.

Great! That's very helpful.
