DNA solves mysteries of ancient Ireland
The Poulnabrone dolmen (Poll na mBrón in Irish) is a portal tomb in County Clare, Ireland, dating back to the Neolithic period, probably built 5-6000 years ago.
She’s a brown-eyed, brown-haired woman, with a face that would be right at home in the Mediterranean or the Middle East.

And she’s Irish.

Irish DNA originated in Middle East and eastern Europe
Genome analysis shows mass migration of Stone Age farmers from Fertile Crescent and Bronze Age settlers from eastern Europe was foundation of Celtic population

Thoth’s Storm: New Evidence for Ancient Egyptians in Ireland?
(Read the article on one page)
When ancient Egypt and Ireland are spoken about in the same breath it usually results in the rolling of eyes, polite exits and the sound of murmurs citing pseudo-history and new age babble.
At least, that used to be the case.
Recent discoveries in DNA research have added to already verified archaeological finds to present a scenario that is now more difficult to dismiss.

Who were the Black Irish, and what is their story?

The term "Black Irish" has been in circulation among Irish emigrants and their descendants for centuries. Yet, as a subject of historical discussion, it is almost never referred to in Ireland. There are a number of different claims as to the origin of the term, none of which are possible to entirely prove or disprove.

Swarthy, blue-eyed caveman revealed using DNA from ancient tooth
Genome sequence of 7,000-year-old human remains overturns popular image of light-skinned European hunter-gatherers
Ol' blue eyes: the gene analysis suggests the mutation for blue eye colour appeared earlier than had been thought, with light skin evolving later. Illustration: CSIC
DNA taken from the wisdom tooth of a European hunter-gatherer has given scientists an unprecedented glimpse of modern humans before the rise of farming. The Mesolithic man, who lived in Spain around 7,000 years ago, had an unusual mix of blue eyes, black or brown hair, and dark skin, according to analyses of his genetic make-up.
He was probably lactose intolerant and had more difficulty digesting starchy foods than the farmers who transformed diets and lifestyles when they took up tools in the first agricultural revolution.
