Horrigans needed for DNA project

Horrigans needed for DNA project

People named Horrigan and Hourigan are cordially invited to join the O'Hourihane DNA projects. This will be my only announcement on this board.

The project home is at:

I am looking for people of Irish descent named some variation of Horan, Horgan, Horrigan, Hanrahan, Hourihan, and even Howard to join the project. Due to a number of factors, there is a possibility that these surnames have historically been confused with each other.

The project is looking for Y-DNA test participants and also autosomal DNA test participants. The project contains a background; goals; a surname distribution map and other items of interest. If you are struggling to find where in Ireland your ancestors originated from, this project could potentially shed some light on the distinctions.

Since my 2012 notice was posted the project has discontinued autosomal DNA analysis. It opens the door to too much speculation.

However the project continues to seek male participants with a project relevant surname for Y-DNA analysis. We can't have too many !
