What is the ‘Magic Hill’?

Beside our brewery in Jenkinstown Dundalk Co. Louth there is a magic hill. Put your car at the bottom of the incline, turn off your engine, and it will slowly roll back up the hill. How does it work? Well!, there are some who say that it is a powerful magnetic force eminating from the depths of the earth that causes it. Others believe that it is just magic, and still others believe that it is caused by un-seen Leprechaun’s who pull the cars from below for sheer devilment.

Whatever it is, it happens, and you should try it out for yourself.
