    Meeting Hall

    Fifty-seven workers were hired to build a stretch of railway in Pennsylvania known as Duffy's Cut in 1832. However, within weeks all of them were dead. It is thought some died from cholera, while others were murdered by local people who believed the immigrants were spreading the disease. They all hailed from counties Tyrone, Donegal and Londonderry. Six sets of remains have previously been uncovered and the new searches that are taking place are at what is believed to be the site of a mass grave containing the remaining 51. Hear all about the story that took place in Malvern and the current efforts being made, as well as the museum at Immaculata University. In addition a possible mass grave of Irish railway works is also taking place at Norwood Cemetery in Downingtown. We’ll hear the latest on that project as well!
