Nial of the Nine Hostages

Hi:

My FTDNA results indicate that I have an Irish connection to Nial of the Nine Hostages. Interesting lore. I do not make any claim to having much of a handle on the whole matter of the DNA testing, but I am wondering if those of you who are more versed in such things can find any way to knit together the Nial results with the contents of the following article:

Thanks
Don

As someone who also has that genetic connection, I take with a huge grain of salt anything associated with him. Possibly including his existence at all. His story sounds more like King Arthur than an actual person.
