Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.

I read the book a few months ago and just recently visited the Lancaster, PA area where the railroad incident occurred. The on-going Duffy’s Cut project is fascinating and sad (and better than CSI) in that it packs everything into itself, unsolved murder mystery, ghost story, Irish heritage, US history, railroad history, immigration, and even genealogy, while searching for present day descendants.


Its a good read!

I did read ABOUT it, but haven't had the chance to read it yet.  Thanks for the review.  I'll have to get to it after the Holidays!

Hello Chris, the story is really tragic so do wait until after the holidays. Also, be sure to look at the updated articles since the book's publishing: 

Thanks for the heads up - Merry Christmas, Bernard!

Thanks, and Merry Christmas to you as well


I just wanted to add for those that live in the area
