Hello everybody,

My maternal line goes back to Ireland and it seems that my mtDNA is T2. I know very little about this Haplogroup and was wondering if somebody knowledgeable on the subject could explain to me how this particular mtDNA came to be in Ireland?

Thanks!

Haplogroup T2 should be come from Caucasus region at the end of the last glacial peiod more than 10,000 years ago. Important presence in Caucasus still now :

Very spred in North Western Europe
Belgium 9% Brittany 8,4% Iceland 10,1% Sardinia 10,3% Norway 7,6% Aragon 10,9% Switzeland 9,3% Normandy 12%

Less in Ireland 5,4% and England 6,2%
