Irish community in Rockaway Township

Classification: Query
I am wondering -- does anyone know how the Irish came to settle in the Hibernia section of Rockaway Township? I realize they came to work in the mines. However, has anyone done work on this community of people? I wonder if they came largely from the same county in Ireland. Are any of the original homes in Hibernia still standing? Is there any way to reach the Irish graveyard since the roads leading there have been closed?
