The DNA of the Dalcassians

The Dalcassians are an Old Irish pack known for having controlled Fourth Clare County, an area in the west of Ireland, for a long time. The Dalcassians were a dynastic group consisting mainly of a number of families, all descended from a common ancestor, Cormac Cas. Cormac Cas was the son of Olioll Olum, a king noted for his rule over Munster in the 3rd century. Many historians believe that the name Dalcassians comes from Dal gCais or Dal gCaisse, meaning "part of Cas".

They reached their peak in the 10th and 11th centuries under the warlike High King Brian Boru, who played a crucial role in repelling a Viking invasion of the island. Boru was a shrewd strategist and tactician who knew how to unite the families that made up the Dalcassians and form them into a powerful whole.

The role of the Dalcassians in Irish history is inextricably linked to the Battle of Clontarf in 1014. In this battle, the armies of Brian Boru defeated the Vikings, ending Viking control of Irish politics and helping the Dalcassians emerge as a significant force in Irish history.

The legacy of the Dalcassians lives on today not only in Irish history and folklore, but also in Irish genetics. Descent from the Dalcassians is a proud heritage claimed by millions of people around the world, especially Irish emigrants and their descendants. Their lineage extends through hundreds of generations and their genes have spread across the globe.

In many ways, the Dalcassians represent a classic era in Irish history. They symbolize Ireland's strength, its resilience in conflict, and its rich cultural heritage. They are both a historical and genetic testament to the complexity and richness of Irish history and culture. Ultimately, they represent a piece of proud Irish identity and enduring endurance.

The Dalcassians belong to haplogroup R-M343 in the paternal line.

Just recently, I gave iGENEA a try, interested to dig into my ancestral roots and had a fascinating experience that's well worth sharing. I always heard stories about relatives in Europe from my grandparents, sparking a curiosity in me about where I truly come from. Therefore, I decided to conduct a DNA test with iGENEA.

Post-delivery of my DNA sample, the processing period by iGENEA was super swift and incredibly professional. The company kept a clear line of communication about the various stages of the test, which minimized my anxiety effectively.

With nerve-filled excitement, I waited for my results, which arrived promptly in just a few week's time. The moment I discovered that I was related to Die Dalcassians was surreal and an absolute blast from the past. The in-depth analysis revealed that I share common ancestors with Die Dalcassians - an origin that can be traced back to medieval Ireland.

The sense of connection to such a prestigious and historic family was both thrilling and overwhelming. Something resonated within me as I went deeper into the clan’s history, known for its heroic warriors and bards.

What impressed me a lot was also the depth and clarity in the results provided by iGENEA. They didn’t just present the results, but also offered comprehensive explanations and references, which gave me further resources to explore and understand my bold Celtic lineage.

Moreover, the compendium of family history they have collated is gigantic and made me feel like I was reading an ancestral encyclopaedia tailored especially for me. It's an experience that is stretching beyond the realms of fun into spirituality and a sense of knowing who I am.

All in all, the process from novice to now was seamless, the staff was incredibly friendly, and the science robust. It has been an absolutely enriching and fulfilling journey to know about my lineage with iGENEA. They indeed succeed remarkably in their mission to connect people with their ancestry. I would absolutely recommend iGENEA to anyone with a curious disposition towards their ancestry.
