It is one of the most iconic movies of all time, but did you know Back to the Future could have some Irish heritage?

According to the Journal, a new collection of short stories, written over a hundred years ago, have a connection to the famous movie.

The work dates back to the early 19th century, where writer Tarlach Ó hUid predicts the plot of 'Back to the Future'.

In the story, a time machine car is trying to go and avert the Civil War.
