Details: In the 1870s and 1880s, the Roman Catholic Church sent Irish priests and nuns to the area to set up churches, hospitals, and schools. Many early Irish settlers are buried in Deadwood's St. Ambrose Cemetery.
It is fitting that the Irish are honored in Deadwood, South Dakota. The Irish in the Deadwood area are linked to the early-day mining camps of the area and religious groups that settled the area.
