Hello,

I came across your Loftus web site and just thought I would add something that I came across when I did a Y-DNA test with Family Tree DNA.

So my last name is Durkin, which is very common around parts of Sligo and Mayo. My closest matches have the names Durkin, Corcoran, Jordan, McIntyre, Pringle, Malcolm and Loftus. Except for Malcolm and Pringle, which are Scottish, the other names are also common in Mayo.

My Loftus match has been able to trace back to Roscommon in the 1800s, but my opinion is that if he were able to go further back he would find some roots in Mayo. It would be interesting to see if any of your Loftus connections with roots in Mayo ever took the Y DNA test to see if they match my Loftus match or any of the other Mayo names.

Take care,

-Mike Durkin
