Family Tree DNA has announced their Holiday Sale on several DNA tests. I am recommending that any Manly male who wants to help all Munleys, Munnellys, Manleys, etc. find their Irish relatives and make connections to specific locations, take the y-DNA 37 marker test. It is on sale for $119.00 US or about 94 euros starting now and ending at midnight CST on December 31, 2012. See
These tests are designed strictly for genealogy. They cannot be used in court to determine paternity or for most other purposes.
All you have to do is scrape the inside of your cheek for several seconds and return the kit to the lab. We would, of course, like to have information that you know about your own ancestry to use in comparing your test results to other Munleys, Munnellys, Manleys, etc. whose results match yours (indicating you share a common ancestor).
You might also consider giving someone a test kit for a holiday gift
