    Only heaven knows. There are clans in Ireland that can trace their lineage back to the Dark Ages. i know of one family that can literally trace their lineage to Charlemagne.

    I have an Irish first and last last name. I'm mostly French and German, I'm an example of the melting pot of America.

    At most, one of your great grandparents could have received a 23&me test, claiming that he/she was 16% Irish, while the 7 other were 0% Irish.

    Or all of your great grandparents were just 2% Irish

    And the second scenario is more realistic, since probably lot of people have an Irish base.

    Plus, anyway, 2% is meaningless: it is far less than the error rate of all those 23&me and similar tests.
