We have results for our newest member in the Corrigan/Carrigan/currigan and variants yDNA Project.

His 37 marker results match at 36/37 with another member Kit # 86212 who's paternal line is; Patrick Corrigan, b abt 1831 (possibly Co Fermanagh) Ireland, marr Margaret Campbell. James Patrick Corrigan, b 1865 Lindsay Ontario Canada, marr Elizabeth Boyer. Frank James Corrigan, b Rochester NY.
Both are part of a cluster of Corrigan men who match well with the Maquires of Airghialla, who the Corrigans are said to be of the same stock. They have been placed in "R1bMag Uidhir cluster- Group 05"of our Project. Kit 197737 is upgrading to 67 markers, so we hope that at some stage 86212 will do so also.We may be able to then better estimate the connection between the two families.
