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:

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:

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.
 
Haplotype R-Y4010

Hello to all, I am new in the group. I see there is a person here with the same Haplotype R-Y4010 which my father had. I tested my first cousin in 23andme. I wish 23andme allows to compare the same haplogroups, that could help. Our oldest paternal ancestor was Pedro de Fuentes born c. 1700, I don’t know where.
Anybody with the same or similar surname in this group?
Thanks in advance.

Whats up buddy, this is Jesse Weaver. I just got my 23andMe back and sure enough, I'm RY4010 (hostages of Oneil) from Ireland.. I had no idea i was paternal Irish. I'm too tan to be considered irish (aren't irish type III the tan variety like clooney?), they bred with sicilians so i got no freckles or fair skin but i sure find redhead, freckles extremely sexy. it all makes sense now, im a terrible mean drunk, love to fight, work hard, love harder, its all a struggle lol. what about you dude? Sarasota here.

Download the DNA relatives (All your matches)? Though I check my DNA relatives on a wekkly basis it is good to download the spreadsheet - delete all the duplicate and unnecessary columns to make it easier to view. Men get both male and female haplogroup assignments and there are others on the list.

The main advantage of testing with 23qandMe is the haplogroups testing included. I would then suggest transferring to GedMatch for free and getting more matches and tools to help for free? MyHeritage can also take your raw DNA data for free and for a small one -off fee of about 20 GBP you get access to the tools and, in my opinion - and some experts, the best ethnicity data and information about genetic testing etc? FT-DNA will also accept your data for free too and they are the specialists when it comes to haplogroups.

The select R-Y4010 is a small group but we are not alone in our search :)
The larger group it belongs to is found in western fringes of Europe amongst 100 million men! Especially high in Celtic areas that include Brittany, Galicia and even in Basque areas, no doubt pushed by political' pressures to the edges of Europe? (Wikipaedia)

In Ireland the larger grouping is high in western Ireland and, as always, should be backed by paper research. However, on first look, without paper records, it could be sensible to assume that Celtic Britain and particularly Ireland would be sensible starting points with ethnicity? Note that surnames and haplogroups do not necessarily follow along with each other as you might expect. (Another thread needed).

Lastly, it is important to note the rapidly increasing number of haplogroups and the changes in numbering and groups is rapid and ongoing. I am currently jotting down groups of interest, assigned to people with the same surname, which is how I found this group! :)

(Also try facebook groups for genetic groups?)

Good Luck,
Seamus Crowe
