Well to give perhaps a poor analogy (and don't read more
into it) it is harder to make water using fruit punch than
to make fruit punch using water. You have mixed haplogroup
east versus R1b Ireland. I don't have a problem with R1b
going to Europe in the early history of modern man but I
think it a much tougher sell when one is talking the Bronze
Age.

Best wishes!
