Placenames – Jink’s Hill/Rathdown Road

Dorożka (city cab), Poland, XIX-XX c. Karwik via Compfight

Rathdown Road is know by older people in Greystones as Jink’s Hill.

It is a steep hill and can appeared jinxed (unlucky) on icy mornings

when cars skid, slip and slide.

However the road gets its name because there was a family called Jenkinson

(nicknamed Jinks) who lived in a cottage on the hill.
