Ancestry DNA now detects 90+ genetic Irish regions has confirmed via its blog that more than 90 distinct genetic regions in Ireland can now be identified in its DNA testing analysis process. Just 13 were detectable only 18 months ago.

The blogpost, by Kristen Hyde, says 92 distinct regions of Ireland are now offered. "We now have the capability to break the Irish population down by province, county and in some cases, parish!" she writes.

All researchers who have tested with the company should have seen their Ethnicity Estimates updated recently to reflect the improved detection of regional markers.
