Name Jumping Church County Louth Nearest Town Ardee Access Road N2 About The Jumping Church of Kildemock, near Ardee, is a mystery that has few plausible explanations.

A plaque on the site reads: This wall by its pitch, tilt and position can be seen to have moved three feet from its foundation.

Contemporary accounts mention a severe storm in 1715 when the wall was lifted and deposited as it now stands but local tradition states that the wall jumped inwards to exclude the grave of an excommunicated person.

It is very doubtful if a storm could have moved the wall in such whole way and deposited it symmetrically as it now lies.
