Ballybowhill, Ireland was the village in Ireland where Seamus and Maggie McFly originated before heading for America.

They mentioned it to their great-great-grandson Marty McFly under the guise of "Clint Eastwood" while they ate dinner on September 2, 1885.

Behind the scenes[]

Ballyboghill is a village in County Dublin, and is about ten miles north of the capital of Ireland [1], and histories of the region concede that its name "is found spelled in a variety of fashions," [2]. Historically, it was the site of the staff of St. Patrick, the "Baculum Christi", which gave it its Irish name, Baille-na-Bochill.
