The blood in Irish veins is Celtic, right? Well, not exactly. Although the history that used to be taught at school said the Irish were a Celtic people who had migrated from central Europe, the latest studies of Irish DNA tell us a very different story. Research done into the DNA of the Irish has shown that our old understanding of where the population of Ireland originated may have been misguided.
And those from the west of Ireland have stronger evidence of this in their genes than those from the east of the country. The genetic make-up of the Irish is very similar to that of the Scottish and the Welsh and also, unusually, those from the Basque region in northern Spain. Ireland, Scotland and Wales are Celtic countries, but the Basque region is not - so why are we genetically similar? We have not been as affected by migration as other places and this could be why our genetics are very similar. Research into the subject is ongoing, but those involved in the study have found that the blood group O is very common in Celtic people, as well having similarities in our rhesus factors and a shared prevalence of Y chromosomes, which is passed down the male line. The fact that our genetic make-up is different to other countries in the world also has health implications for us.
What Your Facial Features Say About You, According To Science
Ireland has been inhabited for about 12, years according to archaeological studies see Prehistoric Ireland. For most of Ireland's recorded history, the Irish have been primarily a Gaelic people see Gaelic Ireland. From the 9th century, small numbers of Vikings settled in Ireland, becoming the Norse-Gaels.

The eyes may be considered windows into the soul, but according to some researchers, the rest of your facial features say something about you , too. In fact, by some reports, they reveal more about your true personality than any written quiz possibly could. Australian professor and researcher Alan Stevens told Business Insider that there's a lot of statistical support out there to draw incredible conclusions about your character and health merely based on your natural facial features — and many branches of academia are curious about exploring the subject further. Genes and hormones affect our growth and shape our character, so why not the biological makeup of our faces? It may sound like a stretch, sure, but check this out.
