Duffy's Cut Workshop   

SATURDAY, February 15, 2020

HERITAGE STAGE at the Marriott


Duffy's Cut is a site in Malvern, PA where a mass grave of 57 immigrant Irish railroad workers was found in the 1990s. Although the railroad reported that they died of Cholera, archeological excavations have shown the possibility of mass murder. Immaculata College along with many other supporters continue to research the deaths and have worked to erect tombstones & memorials and also give proper burials. A Representative of Duffy's Cut will be giving an informational seminar on the Heritage stage at 2:30pm. Come and learn the history and learn how you can support their efforts!
