Niall of the Nine Hostages
Posted by: Colin Ferguson (ID *****4518) Date: January 18, 2006 at 10:15:56

"As many as one in 12 Irish men could be descended from Niall of the Nine Hostages, a 5th-century warlord, according to research conducted at Trinity College Dublin."

Details are here:,,2091-1986072_1,00.html

Results from the FERGUS(S)ON DNA Project show that any FERGUSSON descended from the ancient house of Dunfallandy in Perthshire has the same type of DNA as attributted to Niall.
