Oriel Septs of Ireland Project-Mac Aree, McKearey, Kearey

I have just launched a new geographic DNA project: "Oriel Septs of Ireland."
Because the surname of Mac Aree (Mac Fhearadhaigh in Gaelic) and is listed as being of Oriel, and Mac Keary is listed as a variant of that name, we have chosen to add the surnames of McKearey and Kearey to our list of surnames that are eligible for joining the project.
We are particularly looking for those McKearey and Kearey families that might have come from the areas included in the Kingdom of the Oriel, which would be Counties, Armagh, Fermanagh, Louth, Monaghan, Tyrone and south Down.
If you have already been Y-DNA tested at FTDNA, there will be no additional expense, because you are allowed to belong to a geographic project, in addition to your surname project.
If you have not been Y-DNA tested, you can both join the project, and order a Y-DNA test kit, from a link on our project's web site:
https://www.familytreedna.com/public/orielsepts
Or you can just google FTDNA, and do a search on McKearey or Kearey, and you will find our Oriel_Septs listed there. By joining through our project, you will also be getting our group discount on the price of a Y-DNA test kit.
I do not sell test DNA kits, nor do I make any money from the sale of test DNA kits. I am strictly a volunteer for the Oriel Septs of Ireland DNA Project.
Thank you,
Mary Becker
