Analysis of Grant DNA results
First the results to date. I have indicated mutations relative to m own dna (my dna is the light green colour on the chart, the very dark green are mutations from mine.

And to see where people fit, this is a simplified chart of how the origins are believed to exist. The man at the top of the chart, David Grant of Ballyhabooley, is 12 generations back from me.
Commentary
The DNA analysis results from the lab show that the DNA samples from me (g-g-grandson of Stephen Grant of Shinrone above), from David R Grant in Canada (g-g-grandson of
William of Shinrone above) and Leo Grant (direct decendant of John Grant the convict) all lead back to a common ancestor.
However, the sample from Jer Grant is completely different from the expected result, so either the Grants of Moyaliffe are unconnected to the Grants of Shinrone and the Grants of
Moyne (extremely unlikely), or there has been an event like the second marriage of a widow to a Grant, with the result that the children of her first marriage assumed the surname
Grant.To test the possible variations I need to find Grant descentants of either/both Christopher in Australia and James in USA. Either of these should show either the same root as Jer Grant or 
the root of the other thee samples analysed.
The other issue to be resolved is to try to split out the various branches of the Grants in Kilkenny/Waterford to see how or if their DNA has moved. I need to find more subjects here.
