    It make sense considering how close the north of England is to Scotland.

    DNA study shows Celts are not a unique genetic group

    http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-31905764

    "According to the data, those of Celtic ancestry in Scotland and Cornwall are more similar to the English than they are to other Celtic groups.

    The study also describes distinct genetic differences across the UK, which reflect regional identities.

    And it shows that the invading Anglo Saxons did not wipe out the Britons of 1,500 years ago, but mixed with them."

    In that same article the author writes;
    Ireland would have had the European bear, wolf, fox, hare, etc.,” he continues. “And it appears that the Mesolithic communities may have brought wild boar with them from Britain or Europe by boat; that is, they were part of a ‘transported landscape’.”

    These animals arrived in Ireland by land bridge and the same goes for the Mesolithic people.I don't believe that the Mesolithic people brought wild boar in boats.

    "In other words, today’s Irish people are largely descended directly from the Neolithic populations of the island. And some can trace their genes back even to the Irish Mesolithic. If you have a bit of Irish in your blood, you likely have ancestors who were building those massive stone tombs, clearing the forests, and who eventually may have listened to the voice of St. Patrick."
