Etymology[edit] Cillín Chaoimhín is the associated Irish name for Hollywood; its literal translation being Kevin's Small Church. Another, older Irish name is Cnoic Rua, literally meaning Red Hill. This may be a reference to the red berries of holly trees on the hills above the village or it may in fact be a reference to the presence of Wicklow heather. Another possibility is that the original name for Hollywood may have been Holy Wood, as a reference to Saint Kevin's passage through.[citation needed]

History[edit] Tutty's of Hollywood. The village has an association with 6th Century Saint Kevin and many pilgrims passed through, following in Saint Kevin's footsteps, on their way to the monastic settlement at Glendalough, until the practice ceased in the early 1900s. Local landmarks include Saint Kevin's Chair,[2] and Saint Kevin's Cave.[3] Saint Kevin's Way is a 30 km pilgrim path from Hollywood to Glendalough, and is connected to the Wicklow Mountains National Park.[4]

Surroundings[edit] Sign in Hollywood, Co. Wicklow The Church of Ireland in the village church has a vaulted roof from the 17th century. About 3 km northeast of the village is Poulaphouca, where the Liffey cascades in three stages. The Poulaphouca Reservoir (also known as Blessington Lakes), which cover about 5,000 acres (20 km2) or 20 km², were formed 50 years ago by the building of the Poulaphouca Dam and hydroelectric power station, and today serve the purpose of providing the power and water that supply County Dublin. The Bronze Age Piper's Stones, are 3.5 km to the southwest of Hollywood on the N81.[5] The site is signposted. Hollywood, like its namesake in California, has a connection to the entertainment industry. It has provided a setting for several films, including King Arthur, Dancing At Lughnasa, and Michael Collins.[citation needed] An imitation of the iconic Hollywood sign overlooks the village from a nearby hill.[6]

Sports[edit] Gaelic games are represented through the local club, Hollywood GAA, which plays in the Wicklow Senior Football Championship.
