Does anyone know if this FTDNA group is still active?  Anyone in contact with Sean Quinn?

The County Donegal DNA Project is ongoing and around 180 persons in total have been tested.
Due to the large volume of e mails it is not possible to reply to all. Most e mails received do not state whom they match.
The focus is upon those tested and establishing the connection between them in addition to testing new connected persons.

Hello Magh Ithia,

I have Donegal Ancestry, My Paternal  Grandmother was from Ballyshannon as were her parents, Great Grandparents, My Paternal Grandfather was from Derry City, but his parents, great grandparents were from Muff & St. Johnston, Co. Donegal.

My siblings and I have done Ancestry DNA and my brothers DNA results on Ancestry link him specifically to the Inishowen Peninsula.  He was the only one of us with that result. We all have the same parents!!

We have uploaded to Family Tree DNA so would we qualify for Inclusion into the Donegal DNA Project?

Ballycarton.
