I am the co-admin for the Wales_Cymru DNA project.
So far it looks as though R-L21* will be the dominant haplogroup in Wales, but we do not have enough men in our project who have done deep clade testing to say this with absolute certainty.
We can say that R1b1b2 overall (all subclades) is in the lead, with I1 coming in second.
For those R1b1b2 men who have done the deep clade test, most are L21*, very few R-P312* (upstream from L21) or R-M222 (downstream from L21). I believe that M222 is common in Ireland and Scotland, but I am no expert on those countries.
Why would you think there would not be as much L21* in Wales as there is in Ireland?
Here is our project site, you are welcome to bookmark it and watch as more R1b1b2 deep clade results come in.
