Hello, while browsing the thread for another mtdna haplogroup, I was directed to a site where I explored that haplogroup as well as my own, J1c2, and I noticed there were a lot of J1c2 from Denmark. As my maternal line comes from an Irish county whose major city (Waterford) was founded by the Vikings, I wondered if I could be descended in the maternal line from a Viking settler's wife. Skol?
 
Scandinavia raider colonised parts of Ireland. Icelanders got their wives for ireland also
