He does not have an exact match in the group, but has the values; 390 = 25 385b = 13 392 = 14 which puts him in the "North West Irish Haplotype".This is most often associated with NW Ireland and Lowland Scotland,but can be found in other areas of Ireland and the UK.
We have 3 men in our "Unmatched NW Irish Type Group" 139965 who can trace back to Co Laois, Ireland, N16485 traces to Co Waterford, Ireland and N47168 to PA,USA.
We have some funds in our Whalen Project General Fund,for those who are interested in having a Whalen/Whelan/Phelan (or variant) male test,but may need some assistance with covering the cost. We would give preference to those who have a known genealogy trail, especially if back to a county or town in Ireland. For more information please contact me off list.
