The MacTighernan DNA Test

McTernan / McTiernan / MacTiernan

The goal is to map all MacTighernans both genetically and geographically. With 127 tests completed and 6 TBR, the DNA sampling in this test is random currently from 127 MacTighernans or very close surname variants from around the world that at the time of testing live in eleven countries on five continents with no correlation except the same surname or close variant and the same close proximity of origin in Cos Leitrim, Sligo, Roscommon and Cavan with a couple of outlyers. Like most Irish families, the deep time history of the MacTighernans is all but lost.

The DNA test is perhaps the only chance to begin to make any family connections as many of the MacTighernan families like a smaller scale of the larger Irish Diaspora have scattered to distant lands in the world and live there today. The spelling of the surname does not really matter as the historical spelling never seems to match the current spelling in many of the families so the Gaelic spelling of MacTighernan is used to cover all the variants of our surname including McKiernan. 

To date, almost all 127 tested MacTighernans that know their origins come from this small area in Connacht in NW Ireland shown in green on the map on the left, 450 square miles more or less with a few exceptions, Gus and Terry whose verbal family history states that their line is from Scotland and David (CN)'s verbal family history states that his family is from the Kilarney Lakes, Co Kerry area of Ireland.
Clay MacTarnaghan's family origin is in Co Antrim. Based on the DNA study at this point in time it appears that the origins of most MacTighernans, 82 out of 127 are in Co Leitrim. The Google earth satellite image that graphically shows the townland origin of each MacTighernan if known is at this web site: http://mctiernan.com/McTmaps.htm

While Leitrim is one county, it is historically divided into North and South Leitrim with Lough Allen being the dividing line. In South Leitrim from the mid 1500s, the Irish Clan way of life was under serious threat. An increasingly powerful English administration was slowly but surely extending its influence and dominion. In a visit to Mohill in 1540, the Saxons destroyed the
Monaghan Franciscian Friary and beheaded the Prior and several of the Monks.   By 1590, the English government forces were actively routing the local clans. All MacTighernans in the DNA test from Leitrim come from north Leitrim with the exceptions of Michael-MH, Ed (NJ), [Scott (CO), Cathal, Sean-SF], Jim III and Charles whose family origins are in townlands in South Leitrim.

Philip O'Rorke, The O'Ruairc of Bréifne whose family were the past kings of Drumahaire in Co Leitrim has taken the DNA test. The O'Rorke DNA web site is  http://www.familytreedna.com/public/roark/. The O'Conor Don, Cathal Crovderg O'Conor, whose ancestors were the past high kings of all of Ireland has also taken the DNA test. So far none of us genetically relate to either one. With the tests completed so far we 127 MacTighernans fall into 20 different, separate, distinct and unrelated genetic groups.


Genetic diversity equals age. The more diverse genetic make up of a population in a specific area, the older it is. In all the world, Africa has the most diverse genetic makeup. Ethiopia, the Horn of Africa has the most genetic diversity in all of Africa which is where the first humans gathered to exit and populate the rest of the world. Western Europe including Ireland has the least diverse genetic population of all areas on earth. So in Africa the population moved and in western Europe they did not, genetically speaking.

There is no way to know for certain what the total number is for distinct genetically separate MacTighernans on a worldwide basis. My research specifys about 481 individual MacTighernans worldwide. I am guessing that many are in the same family.  In 1659 only 4275 people lived in all of Co Leitrim of which MacTighernans were 38, 26 in north Leitrim and 12 in south Leitrim.  Mary Tiernan offers this web site for the Down Survey for a better understanding http://downsurvey.tcd.ie/.

The below is taken from the book the life and times of Sir Frederick Hamilton 1599--1647.  The Leitrim town of Manorhamilton is named after Sr Frederick, who was also known for his addictd hobby of hanging a Catholic a day.

In or about 1620 several Leitrim locals were given lands in James I plantation effort. A Mulmory MacTernan is listed as a lesser grantee during James I Plantation effort in Leitrim. In 1641, Mulmory MacTernan, of Lisnanorrus townland, chief of the clan, was a resident justice of the peace for Co Leitrim.  Some years earlier he was the Co. Leitrim Sheriff.  As such he was an important man in the county also owning the neighboring townlands, Drumbrahade, Lisacoghil, Lisnanaw, Tullintowell and possibly Greaghnaglogh.  The 1847 Griffith's validation list possible descendents: Thomas McTernan in Lisnanorrus and James mcTernan in Greaghnaglogh.  The 1901 and 1911 census list a Thomas, 1871--, and his wife Mary, 1873--,  in Lisnanorrus with two children, John Francis, 1897--, and Anne, 1902--. 

The undertakers were listed as receiving the divided lands of The O'Rourke. Mulmory MacTernan is listed as receiving 500 acres of O'Rourke land which was at the lower end of the scale. The expectation was for the grantee to keep the local natives in check.  The grants to lesser sub chiefs [like MacTernan] were to help crush the power of the O'Rourkes once and for all.  The king took a higher percentage of the confiscated land in Leitrim as opposed to other counties as the Leitrim natives needed more civilization than the midlands.  In February 1642, Sir Frederick Hamilton sent a force of 80 horse and foot to relieve the protestants at Parke Castle. On their return to Sir Frederick's castle they were attacked by 1000 Irish rebels.  After a fierce battle the English won and killed 60 of the rebels.  Mulmory MacTernan was one of the 60 killed.

Now this is the gospel truth, 375 years after Sir Frederick Hamilton killed Mulmory MacTernan in 1642, when he saw another McTiernan inside the ruins of his castle namely myself, his ghost tried to kill me.  In November of 2017, I and my family were visiting Ireland, specifically Manorhamilton.  We were touring the ruins of Sir Frederick Hamilton's castle and about 5 seconds after I turned the corner in the photo at left, the ghost of Sir Frederick launched a 200 lb. stone from the high castle keep falling away from the castle walls.  Strange after 375 years the rock fell just when a McTiernan was walking by.  He killed Mullimury but missed me.

North Leitrim's largest town, Manorhamilton was called "O'Rourke's little fields". Its recent name was given to one of the most dreaded local rulers, Sir Frederick Hamilton who came to Manorhamilton from Scotland and founded a castle in 1638. He was the grandson of James II,  Earl of Arran. It was said that Sir Frederick was used as an example if you were trying to make Cromwell look good. He was to use the gallows in Manorhamilton daily, to hang a Catholic. One of his last and many acts of destruction was the burning of Carr Castle, a stronghold of the O'Rourkes at Glencar in 1641.

Lord Hamilton had invited the local chiefs to dine at his castle with the intention of killing them while they ate. As the time approached for the servants to do the deed, the old Irish piper providing the music for the feast played the song, "Make your visits short and far between". Too busy eating and drinking to get the hint, the local chiefs were killed by the servents. Lord Hamilton and his castle fell in 1652 when attacked by the Royalist Clanricard and Owen Roe O'Neill. As per Lorcan O'Runai in his book "From Rosclougher to Rooskey": Lord Hamilton escaped from his castle hiding in a group of women released by Owen. It is said that he shed tears as he paused on horseback to take a last look at his castle in flames.

Unlinked and unproven but still most likely our very early history falls under one of these three noted MacTighernans below.

Earlier in the 11th century two MacTighernan families were noted in Irish history as chiefs, Lord McTernan of Tullyhunco, Co Cavan and the McTernans of Co Fermanagh. Their lines may well be extent at this point in time. In recent history, at least since the famine years, most of the MacTighernans in Ireland are found in Co Leitrim. The historical family origins of the majority of the 127 DNA testers are in Co Leitrim. How we might connect to them or to each other is very difficult to prove as written records in Ireland usually only start at around the 1850s.

The McTernans of Co Fermanagh may have disappeared and there are no known descendants of the other three 19th century historically well known MacTighernan families from Rockfield and Tullyhunco listed below. The seat of the Tullyhunco MacTighernan family for many hundreds of years was Cruacan mic Tigearnain where The O'Rourke was inaugurated Prince of the Bréfny. It is now called Croaghan, lying six furlongs [3/4 mile] northerly of the village of Killeshandra in the barony of Tullyhunco in Co Cavan. The earliest entry in the annals on the MacTiernans is 1258 about a Magrath MacTiernan, chief of Teallach-Dunchadha who was slain by Donnell, son of Conor O'Rourke. The MacTighernan castle ruins are at this web site: http://mctiernan.com/castle.htm  In Irish history the Rockfield McTernans and the Heapstown MacTiernans were part of the landed gentry which translates to being well off being able to send the kids off to boarding schools.  One Rockfield went to medical school in Paris and ended up a surgeon in HMS Naval service seeing action in the America's War of 1812 in the Chesapeake Bay in America and also being on the island of St. Helena helping to guard Napoleon when he passed.

According to John C. McTernan's recent book titled Sligo Families, vol II,  Leet's Directory (1812-1814) listed three McTernan 'seats' or residences, namely that of Con at Rockfield [noted above], James of Leonagh and Hugh [ T group baseline ] at Mount Allen in Co Roscommon whose family was originally from Sweetwood townland in Co Leitrim.  A diagram of the family links along with the connection to the O'Conors, http://mctiernan.com/3links.htm

A recumbent tombstone in Killargue's old cemetery behind the chapel bearing the family coat-of-arms, is inscribed with the names of Farrel McTernan, 1752--1818 and his wife Mary Dolan, 1752--1798. Farrel is the given name of the earliest known ancestor of Hugh McTiernan (Bos) family line who is in the T2 DNA Group.

The Chapel of Creevelea was the traditional burial place of the McTernans of Rockfield, Mount Allen and Heapstown [and Sheskin] where large recumbent flagstones mark their final resting places. In close proximity another memorial links the families of O'Rourke and McTernan and is inscribed as follows: Here lyeth the bodye of Hugh O'Roirk and Catherine McTernan who departed this life May 22, 1721. This is the mysterious gravestone that has the symbols of playing cards: heart, spade, diamond and club along with the etching of a cat which in O'Ruaric history is supposed to have awaken him from a nap in a pasture preventing him from being captured by enemies. The foot of the McTernan Achievement at left states: The McTernan coat of arms hereby illustrated is officially documented in Burke's General Armory. The original description of the Arms [at left] is as follows: Two lions pass., GU. When translated the Blazon also describes the original colors of McTernan Arms as: Ermine; two red lions walking on a field of caltraps. Caltraps were home-made 4 inch wooden spikes bound together like jacks in pick-up-jacks.  When running away from the Calvary you threw these over your shoulder and when one horse steped on one the Calvary stopped and you got away.  Above the shield and helmet is the crest which is described as: A Red Griffin Standing, Green Wings Raised.

This info can be complex so please read the headers and footers in all the following grids to better understand it.   http://mctiernan.com/read.jpg

The 20 separate, distinct and different MacTighernan DNA groups start with the letter T which is just a naming convention as each of the DNA Groups are in all ways equal, none being more pure than the other.

The ancestors of the two McTernan families from Leonagh in Co Leitrim, Rory's from Sweetwood in Co Leitrim, Heapstown, Co Sligo & Mountallen, Co Roscommon and mine from Sheskin, Co Leitrim all of whom are in the T Group are buried in the Abbey of Creevelea, Co Leitrim. Rory's earliest known ancestral home is in Sweetwood, Co Leitrim and then in Mountallen Townland in Co Roscommon which has the date 1671 etched in the fire place mantle which implies the year of construction of their family home.  From Mount Allen the family moved to Heapstown, Co Sligo.  John C. McTernan [T3a], the well known Co Sligo arthur and retired Chief Librarian of Co Sligo in his book Sligo Families II writes that the Mount Allen / Heapstown McTernan family originally came from Sweetwood, Co Leitrim and relate to the Leonagh, Sheskin and Rockfield McTernan families, see http://mctiernan.com/3links.htm. Three of these four families are buried at the Abbey of Creevelea with the Rockfield McTernans whose male line has become extent buried in their family vault at Brockley Cemetery, Parish of Lewisham, Kent, England.

This web site has the beginning of a very complex diagram of how the 2 McTernan families [Rockfield & Heapstown] relaate to each other and to the O'Connors of Sligo who are suppose to be part of the clan that was once the kings of all Ireland.  The Heapstown McTernan are in the T Group baseline.  http://mctiernan.com/3links.htm

Relationship of the DNA Groups to each other: The T and T3 Group baselines only have 16 out of 25 DYS markers that match. More than 1/3 of the markers do not match resulting in a 9 loci pattern mutation event difference. The T2 Group baseline has an 8 loci difference to the baselines of both the T Group and the T3 Group. Philip O'Rorke, The O'Ruairc of Bréifne has a 9 loci mutation event difference with the baselines of the T and the T2 Groups but only a 7 loci mutation event difference with the T3 Group baseline. The O'Conor Don has a 21 / 25 match to the T3a baseline. If you are in one DNA group you do not genetically relate to any MacTighernan in any other DNA Group

Our name may have been part of the inward migration of colonists and displaced people in the 17th & 18th centuries.  The native Irish names of North Leitrim previous to the 17th century were O'Rourke, MacClancy, MacKinnaue, O'Meehan, McMurrow, and MacGoldrick.  The O'Rourkes were the ruling family of the former kingdon of Breifne, MacClancy was the ancient tribal clan from Dartry in the north of the region and the MacKinnaues in the Lough Allen area;  the O'Meehams migrated from South Munster before the 11th century. The MacGoldricks were a clan of some consequence in and around that part of the region that adjoins Co Fermanagh. 

When the personal names in North Leitrim are examined we see there has been a great migration of people into the area of North Leitrim.  Some of the more prominent names in the area today are;  Rooney, McGowan, Kelly, McMorrow, Clancy, Connolly, McTiernan, McGloin, Feely and Dolan.  The most significant migration seems to have occured from Ulster.  Numerious northern families were displaced by the plantation of Ulster and after the Famous Diamond Fight in Armagh in 1793 many settling in Leitrim.  [above 2 paragraphs from; Glenfarne - A History]

The Great Unsolved MacTighernan Mysteries & Accomplishments

1. Locate Reverend Stephen's "copybook"    He was interested in historical and Gaelic matters for which he was made a member of the Royal Irish Academy in 1884. In addition, Rev. Stephen McTernan, 1811--1906, was a member of the Societe Generale in Paris, France for which he received an annual sum of money. Reverend Stephen's personal papers were uncovered in 1907, by Rev. Charles Comey, curate of Cloonclare, Manorhamilton. The papers were found in St. Claire's Chapel in Manorhamilton. Cloonclare was in the ancient parish of Cloonloger, now included in the Catholic parish of Drumlease, Co. Leitrim.  More on his personal papers which are called the "Copybook"   Finding this may be a key to unlocking the wider McTernan family history as Rev. Stephen kept this diary from childhood.  Rev Stephen is my 1st cousin, 3 generations removed in the T Group.

2.  Understand the O'Rourke and McTernan connection in the Chapel of Creevelea as it was the traditional burial place of the McTernans of Rockfield, Mount Allen and Heapstown [and Sheskin] where large recumbent flagstones mark their final resting places. In close proximity another memorial links the families of O'Rourke and McTernan and is inscribed as follows: Here lyeth the bodye of Hugh O'Roirk and Catherine McTernan who departed this life May 22, 1721. This is the mysterious gravestone that has the symbols of playing cards, heart, spade, diamond and club along with the etching of a cat.  Tie one of the future DNA testers to  The O'Ruaircs of Bréifne were the past kings of Drumahaire in Co Leitrim

3. Tie one of the DNA  testers to James McTernans, of the Rockfield McTernans a British naval surgeon who was in the squadron which protected St. Helena during the residence there of Napoleon, and was present on the island at the death of that distinguished, but unfortunate monarch in 1821. James was also the surgeon on a British warship in the Chesapeak Bay in the War of 1812.  In historical documents the Rockfield McTernans and the Heapstown McTernans [ Rory's line in the T group baseline ] are called kinsmen and are related.

4. Understand the meaning of the 4,000 year old Cairn   located on Rory's Heapstown family estate. What might be the connection to Rory's McTernan family who are in the T Group baseline.

5. The McTernan School: located in Waterbury, CT.  In 2005, St. Margaret's-McTernan school changed its name to Chase Collegiate School. The new name honors the Chase family, which helped to found both St. Margaret's and the McTernan School.  Charles McTernan from Foxbourgh, MA founded the school.  A male line may descend from Charles' uncle, Patrick, 1863--,  who was born in Boston.  Charles' son Donald married and lived in France having two daughters.  This family originally immigrated to the Boston area from Co Leitrim. Long shot for DNA match.

6. Jane Aloyaia McTernan, 1888--, born  in Calcutta station, Bengal, India.  To which DNA family does she belong.

7.  Thomas McTiernan, 1883--1893, died at 10 years old at the army station of Mount Abu which is a popular hill station in the Aravalli Range in Sirohi district of Rajasthan state in western India near the border with Gujarat.  There is no mention of his parents in records.

8. Bernardette McTiernan, 1890--1893, most likely the sister of Thomas above.  Died at the army station of Mount Abu which is a popular hill station in the Aravalli Range in Sirohi district of Rajasthan state in western India near the border with Gujarat.  There is no mention of her parents in records.

9. Whereabouts of the McTernan Stone, an excessively heavy round stone thrown by Thomas McTernan known as Long Tom from Ardvoley, the grandfather of John-Rev in the T Group baseline. The stone thereafter was known as the McTernan Stone and now lies in the area of Killavoggy.

10. Tirmactiernan, Co. Leitrim on the banks of the Shannon/Erne canal system in South Leitrim.  About 7.1 KM from Carrick on Shannon. Why was it named Tirmactiernan and what if any connection to any in the DNA test.

11. What might be our connection to Rathmactiernane, a townland in Killoran parish, Co Sligo listed in the Hearth roll of 1665 with Cahill McTanist?

12. A horse by the name of MacTiernan was racing in Dublin for the 2010 to 2012 season.  He is running well, previously owned by Christine Kiernan.  Why did she name the horse MacTiernan ?

13. Cathal Mac Tigernan was King of West Connacht... died 1059... which means he predates the O'Rourkes. Áed in Gai Bernaig, King of Connacht from 1056 to 1067, had invaded and conquered Maigh Seóla in 1051, blinding its king. Cathal mac Tigernán is the next ruler of the kingdom recorded upon his death in 1049.

14. Origin of the 3 ring forts in the townland of Listernan, Co Cavan and why the name which in Gaelic means Ternan's fort ?

15.  We are suppose to descend from the O'Rourks past kings of Drumahaire & the O'Conor, past kings of Ireland. So far none of the MacTighernans genetically match either The O'Ruairc or The O'Conor Don Chieftains but the T Group baseline is a perfect match to Michael O'Rourke.

16. The unfinished list of all MacTiernans who were killed or served in their country's armed services in the many wars for Freedom starting with the Leitrim Plantation Wars and ending with WW II, http://mctiernan.com/mwardead.htm 

17.  Edward McTiernan from Worcester, MA had a top 10 finish in the 1909 Boston Marathon (#9) See 1909 & 1911 results at http://www.coolrunning.com/boston/results1.htm   To what DNA group might he belong ?

18.  Potential but undocumented link of the Heapstown and Rockfield McTernans to the Sligo O'Conors, past kings of Ireland http://mctiernan.com/3links.htm

Solved or achieved so far

19.  The McTiernan Seat since 1991 is an engraved bench in front of The 300 year old Powerscourt Arms Hotel in Co Wicklow   http://mctiernan.com/McTseat.htm The hotel was owned by Charlie McTernan, 1955-, until 2008 who is in the T2 DNA Group

20. The pamphlet written in 1845 by James MacTernan, <1815--1855, of the Mount Allen [Co Roscommon] McTernans that settled at Heapstown, in Co. Sligo entitled "An Address to my Fellow Countrymen", in which James claimed descent from Tiernan O'Rourke, Prince of Breffni. Found by John C. McTernan.  This James McTernan also invented a new breed of horse called the Buckshot Chestnut.  This is Rory MacTiernan's family in the T Group baseline.

21.  The McTernan Street in Cambridge, MA, USA formerly Lake St. right outside of County Boston, named after WW II vetran, William
Francis, -1944
.  This is Myles McTernan's family: Te DNA Group

22.  McTernan Road, Tinderry, NSW, Australia 2626: is named after the pioneering McTernan family of the area, descending from Hugh and Mary McTernan of Michelago of which Scott (AU) & Richard descend in the Ta DNA Group

23. Origin of McTernan Place, Worrigee, NSW, Australia 2540: is probably named after Barney McTernan [below], Hugh's son who lived down there and had a stagecoach business of which Scott (AU) & Richard descend in the Ta DNA Group

24. Barney McTernan, being one of the stagecoach founders is now a major character in the book, "Coachmen of the Nowra District" in Australia.  Scott (AU), Margaret & Richard in the Ta DNA Group relate to Barney.

25.  Gwladys McTernan Park, named after the mother of Richard in the Ta DNA Group, a park in Naracoorte, South Australia, Australia,

26. Origin of McTiernan Close, Wilsonton, QLD, Australia 4350: probably named after Sir Edward McTiernan who relates to Leo McTiernan in the T3 Group baseline

27.   McTiernan Way, a road in downtown Minto named on 9-2-2013 by the Village of Minto, New Brunswick, Canada after the long history of the family in fire prevention.  This is Michael (CN)'s family in the T DNA Group.

28.  Bartholemew E. McTiernan, 12-11-1877--12-6-1917, born and died in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.  Bartholemew, his mother Margaret Gilroy and his wife Frances Caroline Gough were all killed in the famous Halifax explosion which was and still is the largest man made explosion after the atom bomb.  Bartholemew is the great grand uncle of Greg McTiernan in the T2 DNA Group.

29. Lac McTiernan, a lake in Quebec, Canada, a 7 hour dirve north of Ottawa and 5 hours north of Montreal.  Lac McTiernan was named after William McTiernan born in Bryson, Canada.  He worked for the Canadian International Paper Company in the early 1930s.  To find out more about the man and his father, David McTiernan, both worked in the back country of Gatineau River, read the following book, particularly chapters 14 and 15, Crawford, Venetia, et Gunda Lambton.  The Wildest Rivers -- the Oldest Hills; Tales of the Gatineau and Pontic, Maitland, Ontario.  Canadian International Paper Company may have been bought by E. B. Eddy Company.  The family had a home in the Mason Lumber camp operated be the E. B. Eddy Company. 

A second historical opinion on "McTiernan lake" in the Gatineau hills which may not necessarily be named after a man that lived in Bryson by the name of William McTiernan, as Venetia Crawford explains in her book. William was the 2nd cousin, 2 generations removed of Thomas John McTiernan. Tom, was born and raised in Bryson, Quebec, but this "McTiernan lac" was named by him as a joke!


Tom worked in cartography for Energy, Mines and Resources for 35 years. In the late 70's he and his buddy Dan Lacelle came across quite a few "un-named" lakes in the Gatineau's.  They thought it would be funny to name some lakes after themselves. I would have probably believed Venetia Crawford's story if I would not have found this pamphlet on the internet. Now - what are the chances that this hunting and fishing lodge is situated on the McTiernan and Lacelle lakes? Tom and his buddy Dan (and probably another 5 or 6 guys) used to go fishing together all the time in those days.  However, it is a surprise that the names stayed and that these lakes are now known as the McTiernan and Lacelle lakes.  The Lac brochure showing the full lake, fishing boats and cabins for rent some time ago.  This is Maggie's, Thomas', Douglas (CN)'s & David (CN)'s family in the T Group.


30. McTernan Colour of the Year  This award is conveyed in honour of Irene McTernan, former Edinburgh University Sports Union Administrator (1980-2011), and awarded to the most outstanding individual for exceptional and sustained service to the organisation, delivery and/or administration of a University Sports Club or EU Sports Union.  Colours are approved by the Blues and Colours Committee This award is confined to University of Edinburgh students and was introduced in 2011 to mark the retirement of Mrs McTernan after 31 years of dedicated service to EU Sports Union.  Her husband, Alllen is in the T DNA Group baseline.


31. Maria McTernan Leadership Award is given annually by the Charles River Center in County Boston, MA to the most deserving person who has assisted in their support of programs and services for over 950 children and adults with developmental disabilities.  Maria was the Chief Development Officer for the Center.

32.  Anita McTiernan, from Drumahaire has volunteered almost 20 years at the Mutomo Hospital in Kenya helping the hungry and poor.  If you can please send a donation via Western Union to Anita McTernan.  Please let Anita know that you have donated and also send the tracking number to amcternan@hotmail.com  Anita assures me that unlike many charities every coin donated is used directly on the kids.

33.   Liz McTernan, Paralympian and Iron Man world record holder Liz McTernan is looking for sponsorship support to enable her to continue to achieve success at the highest level. Earlier this year Liz became the handcycle world champion at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. She became only the second female wheelchair athlete to ever finish the Ironman World Championships and she now holds the course record for fastest time.  Liz is in the T7 DNA Group. Read more at: https://www.louthleader.co.uk/sport/more-sport/ironman-athlete-liz-appeals-for-a-sponsor-1-8679462.

34. Maddie McTernan of  NSW, Australia is competing in the swimming events in the ParaOlunics and doing well with 5 gold medals.  https://m.coffscoastadvocate.com.au/news/maddies-paralympics-dream/2851013/

35.  Sarah McTernan, is the daughter of Sined McTernan and the niece of Paul-C McTernan in the T3a DNA group.   Sarah McTernan  represented all of Ireland at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv in May, 2019.  She came third in series four of The Voice of Ireland in April 2015.

If anyone has any information on any of the remaining unsolved mysteries above please let me know

The McTiernans haven't held tenaciously to their family name over centuries sometimes under duress if it did not mean something of real value to them. A legitimacy to their culture and land that stretched back into the distant past to an ancestral line. The Scribe O' Clery in his genealogies refers to two families of Mc Tiernans of North Leitrim, the Clann Tiarnain Bunnaidhe that is the McTiernans of the Bonnet (Drumahaire) and the Clann Tiarnain na Caraha or the McTiernans of Corry (between Drumkerran and Lough Allen) could this explain at least two of the main groups? There is also a possibility that some of those in groups of their own represent the last survivors of the true McTiernan lineage and that the 3 main groups are very successful interlopers? courtesy of Austin McTiernan who is in the baseline of the T3 DNA Group.

The "Great Frost" of 1740-41, Bliain an Áir, or Year of Slaughter, was a period of unusually cold weather that lasted from around December 1739 to September 1741, it was an event that affected the whole of Europe, though seemed to have its worst effects in Ireland.  Deep frosts only occurred during the winter months, but there was little real respite afterwards as the spring and summer weather was unusually cold and dry leading to the death of livestock and the failure of crops, and therefore an inability to prepare for the second unusally cold winter.  Records are scant and the population size only an estimate, guesses as to the loss of life through starvation at this period are 38% of the population

DNA Scoring

While each DNA Group is of equal standing, there are 3 main DNA Groups, the T Group with 41, the T2 Group with 30 and the T3 Group with 19. Each group's baseline is where all in that group started.  The baselines of the 20 distinct DNA groups form automatically when 2 or more MacTighernans genetically match each other perfectly, 25 / 25 then they become the baseline of that specific group.  Matches of 23 or 24 out of 25 markers are in that group just not in the baseline. 
So there are 2 sets of MacTighernans in each of the 20 DNA Groups, the baselines which are made up of perfect match of 25 out of 25 markers and the others that match the baseline 23 or 24 out of 25 markers.   To date there are 12 distinct DNA Groups that have only one person in each group.

Y25: Distance 1:
24 / 25 Probability of a close relationship is very high. You share the same surname (or a variant) with another male [and close proximity of origin] you mismatch by only one 'point' on only one marker. For most closely related and same surnamed individuals, the mismatch markers are usually either DYS 439 or DYS 385 A, 385 B,389-1 and 389-2 from our first panel of 12 markers, and on the following from the second panel of 13 markers: DYS #'s 458 459 a 459b 449, 464 a-d, which have shown themselves to move most rapidly.

Y25: Distance 2: 23 / 25 Probably related. You share the same surname (or a variant) with another male [and close proximity of origin] and you mismatch by two 'points' among the 25 markers tested. The probability of a close relationship is good, however your results show mutations, hence more time between you and other MacTighernans.

Y25: Distance 3: 22 / 25 Probably not related. You share the same surname (or a variant) but are off by 3 'points' or 3 locations on the 25 markers tested.  The following 2 charts show matches that are close but yet still outside of the threshold to match.

Y37: test:  A 33 or better out of 37 markers says you are in the same DNA group.

Above numbers for perfect match of 25 / 25 are in red background - for their specific DNA groups, the red +  and  green + sign above means the grouped individuals are related.
Gene who is in the T Group is an exception as his 3 mutations occurred in only one locus and is considered a radical mutation but is still listed as being in the T Group.  Mark may relate to Martin from Dublin as both families are from the townland of Leonagh. Peter McTiernan of Canada is related to Michael (CN). Turner Bluechel through his maternal line is related to Rory and his sister Alannah.

Warren McTernan is the sole McTernan in the T4 DNA group and is a 5 out of 25 marker match with the T Group and a 7 out of 25 with the T3 Group. Clay MacTarnaghan is the sole tester in the T5 DNA Group.  A 22 / 25 match or less in the previous grids most likely means no common genetic ancestor or the common ancestor is well beyond 2000 years or 70 generations back in time, as in T Group baseline compared to the T3 Group baseline which is a 16 / 25 match. Surnames came into existence in the year 1120 more or less.

The symbol "<" is an event that occurred before that year and a ">" is an event that occurred after that year, e.g. <1800 means born before 1800
