Co Louth Corrigan results in yDNA Project

We have results for our newest member in the Corrigan/Carrigan/currigan and variants yDNA Project.

Member 197737 who's paternal line is;
Patrick Corrigan b1746, wife Catherine b1750 - maiden name unknown
Peter Corrigan b 1783, married Catherine (info unknown)
Patrick Corrigan b 1826, married Bridget Toner
Peter Corrigan b 1873, married Margaret Whearty
All were born in Co Louth, Ireland within a 5km radius close to town of Drogheda

His 37 marker results match at 36/37 with another member
Kit # 86212 who's paternal line is;
Patrick Corrigan, b abt 1831 (possibly Co Fermanagh) Ireland, marr Margaret Campbell.
James Patrick Corrigan, b 1865 Lindsay Ontario Canada, marr Elizabeth Boyer.
Frank James Corrigan, b Rochester NY.

Both are part of a cluster of Corrigan men who match well with the Maquires of Airghialla, who the Corrigans are said to be of the same stock.
They have been placed in "R1b Mag Uidhir cluster - Group 05" of our Project.
Kit 197737 is upgrading to 67 markers, so we hope that at some stage 86212 will do so also. We may be able to then better estimate the connection between the two families.

You can see all results and submitted lineages on our website at

If you or your family are interested in joining the project to see where your Corrigan connect, please get in touch.
We are open to all variants of the Corrigan/Carrigan/Currigan/Kerrigan surname.
At the yDNA is passed from father to son the person testing must be a male Corrigan or variant.
