    Hi Mary,

    Your article: https://irishamerica.com/2019/05/striking-gold-transcontinental-railroad-turns-150/

    In your research of the rail or recent experience have you encountered any Irish laborer descendants?

    I work for Utah State University’s Special Collections and Archives and we are looking to interview such an individual.

    Wishing you health and creativity!
