Happy St. Patricks Day – The Irish Miners Of Leadville

DENVER (KWGN) – As you raise a toast on this Saint Patrick’s Day, we suggest you salute the Irish Miners Of Leadville. 150 years ago, at the height of the gold and silver rush, it was Irish immigrants who answered the call. Thousands made the trek to Leadville, Colorado. When they arrived to work the mines, they found low pay and harsh conditions. The mines could reach temperatures of 100 degrees below, and -20 degrees at the surface. Many of our Irish pioneers didn’t make it. And nearly 1,500 were buried in unmarked graves, too poor to afford a burial. Average age of a person in the paupers grave: just 23-years-old. But now, there’s an effort to honor the lost, remember their efforts, and celebrate their contributions. The Irish Miners Memorial set to open this fall.
