However, the lastest research into both British and Irish DNA suggests that people on the two islands have much genetically in common. Males in both islands have a strong predominance of Haplogroup 1 gene, meaning that most of us in the British Isles are descended from the same Spanish stone age settlers.

Well, that is years behind the times, shockingly so. The reference to "Haplogroup 1" is an obvious anachronism, a little like referring to your PC today as a "Commodore 64".

How did those "Spanish Stone Age" folks end up mostly DF27 in Iberia and L21 in the Isles?

Never mind the latest ancient DNA which shows that the stone age I beria seems to be pred haplotypes G!

"In human genetics, Haplogroup R1b (M343) (previously called Hg1 and Eu18) is the most frequent Y-chromosome haplogroup in Europe".  (Wiki)

That article refers to Hill's article which came out in 2000, Hill has moved on.  She is currently renowned for equine genomics in Ireland.  A SOTT.net community organizer and admitted creative writer chose to source a 13 year old article on Yc DNA.  It could also be a recycled article considering the source.
