    It is not always a question of settlements, but also to the length of settlement, its continuous existence, and such matters. Since the Norse were essentially wont to leave after the Battle of Clontarf, the genetic influence would be relatively minor, their period of settlement was too short for inter-marriage to go rampant.

    Even though we commonly read about such couplings taking place in all types of folk tales, I would think that they were mostly restricted to chieftain's sons and daughters, which would perhaps make it ten times more likely that half-Celts came back to Iceland or Norway, than that half-Germanics stayed on in Ireland. The climate beyond Clontarf was not too favourable for the Norse.

    The name of settlements I would not be too particular about, this often just means that they were the first to found them. Even if they would have abandoned it, the new inhabitants would have likely only changed the name by very little, we have umpteen of village names in Tyrol going back to Rhaetian, that is pre-Bajuvarian, times.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I watched a show a long time ago on TV. They did some kind of genetic test I think with the Y chromosom. They compared a sample group of Irish to people from Scandanavia. It found that about 25% of them had a male Scandanavian ancestor from around the Viking age. Iceland was the same in reverse. About 25% of the "Norse" Icelanders were actually Irish. That's not even counting Saxon or other Germanic influences.

    Distant ancestory isn't as important, because you can take after one side of the family or another. You can "breed out" certain genes. So mainly you can tell the racial composition of somebody by looking at their physical and mental traits, at their parents and their grandparents (because these traits may reside hidden and pop up in their kids) once you start going back past great grandparents it becomes almost irrelevant.

    If you're from Ireland for example you can look at yourself and see if you are physically Nordic or more of a Brunn type. It seems peculiar though most of the Nordic types of Ireland have a reddish hair whereas in Scandanvia blond predominates.
