It is always a pleasure to read your posts. Did you want Kevin Campbell's Journal of Genetic Genealogy article? It is at http://www.jogg.info/31/campbell.pdf
Some excerpts: "Whether called the Irish Modal Haplotype or the "Ui Neill Haplotype" as in the Trinity College paper9, the North-West Haplotype by David Wilson and fellow researchers10, or R1bSTR19Irish as defined by McEwan (2007),11 this corresponds to OGAP8 in the Oxford data."
"In addition, this analysis also identifies the strong migration of OGAP8 to the Argyll area."
"This migration may be explained by the Dal Riada migration12 or as Sykes notes "Ar-gael was coined by the kings of Dal Riata for their three colonies - Mull, Islay, and Kintyre penninsula."" [page 7]
Their identification of Dalriadic Scots as R1b1c7 is of course entirely separate from mine. I made my identification solely on the DNA of families said on good authority to descend from the Dalriadic royal line in the direct male line. Whether they are Fir Bolg/Belgae or not is another issue.
I have a lot of new material but limited typing time.
