Talk about getting it on!

More than 3 million decendants of "Niall of the Nine Hostages, a 5th-century warlord who was head of the most powerful dynasty in ancient Ireland." 800 just in Ireland.

Wow, that is pretty impressive. I didn't realize male lineage could be traced in this way. The Irish press must be having a field day with this.

I wonder why the "Nine Hostages" moniker?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niall_of_the_Nine_Hostages

Under the section "King and High King", there's a bit about his name.

I read of a study that traced the genetic history of the Kohanim and supported common ancestry, the science of genetics is very cool.
