Does Cornish ancestry account for Irish DNA?

The largest proportion of my DNA is Irish, Scottish, Welsh.
I've researched all the branches of my family going back hundreds of years and there is no Scottish or Welsh. I have one great grandfather and ggmother who are Irish.
On my mum's side, the heritage is primarily Cornish. Is this officially Irish DNA?

I have wondered this. As I have a surprisingly high % of Scottish/Irish. But if it included Cornish this would make a lot more sense (a lot of my Ancestry is originally Cornish and lots of marrying back to Cornwall after they left).

I didnt think they could differentiate really. The tests I mean. My friend did one and it just lumped all uk and ireland in together.
