Dunaway DNA Match In Ireland!

I haven't posted in a while, but just got some rather exciting news via email.

Dear Gary,

I am the Group Administrator for The O’Donoghue Society yDNA Project. I was notified by Family Tree that one of our O’Donoghues has a new match with a Dunaway. Checking his personal page, I see he has other Dunaways who match him as well, including yourself!

I’ve looked through your site at World Families and don’t see that any of the pedigrees are able to go back across the Atlantic – of course, some of you have been in America since the 17th century – maybe all of you, even if you can’t go back that far. Are you aware of any Irish connections? While I wouldn’t have originally thought that Dunaway was connected to O’Donoghue, your R1b lineage I and II both match the South Irish modal haplotype, of which the O’Donoghues are a major cluster as one of the prominent Eóganacht surnames in Munster. Our participant shares the same unusual off-modal values of 12-17 at YS385a-b.

Any thoughts you may have about the groups’ origins would be most interesting to me.
