Kildemock Jumping Church


Republic of Ireland

Found just 4km south of Ardee, County Louth, the Kildemock Jumping Church ruin is a popular attraction. According to legend, the west gable of the building jumped two feet inside the wall of the original foundation to exclude an excommunicated church member who had been buried in the church. The ruin dates back to the 14th century, though the site also contains carved stones from the 13th century.
