As we are approaching St Patricks Day I thought I may share some of my Irish connection as a Cameron. The Cameron participants in the "Ardachy" group show a strong relationship to several Ulster families. This could hint at residence in Argyll with some family members migrating to lands owned by a landlord with holdings in both Scotland and Ulster. Colla Uais was a high king of Ireland. Circa 325CE Colla Uais seized Ulster subsequently taking his followers to Scotland. His descendants, known as the 'sons of Erc' (Angus, Fergus & Loarn), became the traditional founders of the Scottish line of the Dál Riata kingdom circa 465CE. This is my line.
