I gotta double dose of R1b

We had family members dna tested on my paternal and maternal sides and discovered this pattern:

Paternal grandfather:

Paternal grandmother's father:

Maternal grandfather:

Maternal grandmother's father:

Maternal mtdna:

The father of my maternal grandfather was born 1864 in East Prussia. We think he was Dutch.

Father's side comes from the British Isles is Scottish/Irish mix.

Maternal grandmother's father was Irish from County Tipperary, Ireland

My origins are in NW Europe. Is this common to have so much R1b in your family tree???
