That's fairly typical, the Irish generally are less mixed than other European areas. AncestryDNA have yet to give us more details since the update, but before their reference panel update, their data said the average Irish native was about 95% Irish.
Thanks for the info.

And this was within Scottish communities, first in PA, then in VA, then SC, then AL and finally in AR. So even though they moved around, they moved within circles of people with Scottish ancestry.

Interestingly, my last name (taken from my husband) is Irish. He has a chunk of Irish ancestry, but his Irish ancestors moved to Louisiana, where they promptly mixed things up quite a bit! His 23andme "color chart" is the colors of the rainbow, with every sort of ethnicity all mixed up, while mine is all blue. Every bit blue. I am 100 percent European - 99.1 percent northern European, with .9 percent as "broadly European."
Thanks.

37.7% Nigerian
9.6% Ghanaian/Liberian/Sierra Leonean
6.8% Congolese
6.2% Senegambian/Guinean
0.8% Southern East African
12.1% Broadly West African
1.7% Broadly Congolese & Southern East African
2.9% Broadly Sub-Saharan African
0.4% African Hunter-Gatherer
0.2% Broadly Northern East African

5.7% British & Irish
8.4% Broadly Northwestern European
1.6% Broadly Southern European
2.0% Broadly European

1.9% Native American
0.3% Indonesia, Thai, Khmer & Myanmar
0.1% Broadly Native American & Northern Asian

More European than I thought, which is a surprise. I have ancestors from every section in Africa except North Africa, which is cool to know. I was pretty excited to find out that one of my parent's haplogroups overlap with an Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh (Ramesses III). Not a direct descendant but, we share a paternal ancestor.

Why is that boring? You're basically completely British, which is not actually super common, even among British people.

All ethnic British people are completely British. European DNA and ancestry isn't the same, so the Scandinavian, and Germanic parts of their DNA is also British, not just the percentage that says British DNA

British people are much more admixed than some other Europeans, such as the Irish. Unfortunately, AncestryDNA removed their admixture chart for their reference panel, and the screenshot I have of it is probably too big to upload here, but it showed that apart from Western Europe and Iberia, the British are more mixed than any other European population, with the typical native British person being only about 60% British. So no, it's not typical for someone to get 98-100% in Great Britain.
