We have results back for a 12-25 marker upgrade for Kit N20308.
He has no matches in the project at the moment,and we have no family information provided.
We can tell from his results that he matches a cluster of men, centred around the Co Clare, Tipperary and Limerick area.
We have a few Whalen men in the project from Limerick and Tipperary,so it will be interesting to see if more Limerick/Tipperary/Clare families match.
