Are you of Viking ancestry?

Within the past year, it’s been confirmed that the Irish have far more Viking and Norman ancestry than we ever knew. A highly detailed new DNA map of Ireland released by the Royal College of Surgeons in late 2017, based upon the genetic information for 500 Irish men and women, showed that the Viking and Norman invasions of Ireland made a more striking impression on the DNA breakup of the country than previously thought.

The Vikings from the Scandinavian countries began raiding Ireland just before 800 AD and continued for two centuries before Brian Boru defeated them at the Battle of Clontarf in 1014. The Viking settlements of Ireland in those years would lay the foundations for many of today’s Irish cities and towns, like Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Wexford, and Waterford.

“Doyle is Ó Dubhghaill, from dubh,’“dark,’ and gall, ‘foreigner,’ a descriptive formula first used to describe the invading Vikings, and in particular to distinguish darker-haired Danes from fair-haired Norwegians. O’Loughlin and Higgins both stem directly from words meaning literally ‘Viking,’ Lochlann in Irish and Uigínn, an Irish version of the Norse Vikinger,” John Grenham wrote in an article for the Irish Times.

“McAuliff, son of Olaf; Groarke, Mag Ruairc, son of Hrothkekr; McBirney, son of Bjorn; Reynolds, Mac Raghnall, from the Norse first name Ragnall.”

Norse names that still survive in Ireland include Cotter, Dowdall, Dromgoole, Gould, Harold, Howard, Loughlin, Sweetman and Trant, according to DoChara.com

Look, esteemed Royal College of Surgeons:

To go "viking"
meant to hide with your ship in a gulf or fjord
-"vik" in the old North Germanic languages -
the term does not refer to an ethnicity.

Geeez.

Loads of ancient North Germanic people never
went viking.

Just saying.

"Royal College of Surgeons" sounds kind of like
scientific stringency juuuust might be a bit good
for your public image and prestige...gnomesayin'..?

Geeez.

No, I've got no idea whether any of my Western
ancestors ever went viking.

Old tales have it, though, that those goddamn
asshole Norwegians, Danes and Swedes liked to
kidnap one or other of my Eastern ancestors,
when they went viking eastward.

They didn't like to bring Finns on their trips because they feared them since they have magic properties.

However, this WAS Sweden. The whole north of Sweden was administered from here not so long ago.

Quote:Some American Indians, like some Europeans, had rituals which they believed could induce rain. The Finnish people, on the other hand, were believed by others to be able to control weather. As a result, Vikings refused to take Finns on their oceangoing raids. Remnants of this superstition lasted into the twentieth century, with some ship crews being reluctant to accept Finnish sailors.

Sweden came into being as a political unit in the 12th
and 13th C. It was always governed from Uppsala and
Stockholm (and from Copenhagen during the Kalmar
Union).

Legend has it, that it was good to have 1 Finn on board
back in viking times,
because he could appease the weather gods, if needed.

This was Sweden?
Seems to me that Erik Jedvardsson and his successors up
until Birger Jarl made it so.

But what do I know...you may well be right.

I don't know anything, but happened to read about it the other week:

Quote:I Mustasaari socken anlades i slutet av 1300-talet Korsholms slott som en utpost för försvaret av det svenska rikets territorium mot nordost. Korsholm blev administrativt centrum för Korsholms län, som fram till 1441 omfattade landområden på ömse sidor om Kvarken och Bottenviken. I Eriks av Pommern skattebok från 1413 upptogs under rubriken Korsholm socknarna Mustasaari, Kyro och Kemi i nuvarande Finland samt Torneå, Luleå, Piteå, Skellefteå, Lövånger, Bygdeå och Umeå i nuvarande Sverige.[6]
