    Fuzzybear44 Talks nonsense!!! Red hair is a scandanavian gene brought over to Ireland by the Vikings!! Original Irish folk are dark in complexion and hair colour!!

    • Daron says:

      Red hair did not originate in the Scandinavian peninsula it originated in Western Europe. The red hair gene came to Ireland when Celtic tribes from Spain, France and Germany settled there.

    • fuzzybear44 says:


      Well I’m looking at kid pictures of her,and she has reddish hair in them.So I guess the Irish ancestry is a good bet.As for Yvonne,Craig is a English name and she is white.Yet my names are (Spanish, French and English),and I’m black.Just thought it was funny to mention it.Well anyhow Thank you very much for your help.
