So I put my DNA in to 23andMe before the FDA curtain came down. Here is my ancestry, computed through Dodecad software:
I guess that makes sense for an Irish boy. It turns out that I'm also Y chromosome haplotype R1b1b2a1a2f2, which lodges me firmly in the common Northern Irish gene pool. My mitochondrial haplotype is H, which links me (apparently) to Napoleon Bonaparte, Susan Sarandon, Luke the Evangelist, and about 50% of Europe. So I'm not terribly special. Which is not necessarily a bad thing!
Last year my pals and I cycled in The Galilee, Northern Israel, to raise money for Nazareth Hospital Paediatric Department. We raised over £50,000 but we could use more! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us in 2017..?
