Hollywood notes December 7


Music Under The Mountain

The annual music school Christmas concert is a chance for our young musicians to show their Mams, Dads & Grans just what they’ve been learning since Sept. It’s a fun night -playing onstage with their tutors. Lots of “goodies” to eat and drink including mince pies and mulled wine for the “big people”!

Our way to say Thank you for your support & Happy Christmas!

The 8th Journal of the West Wicklow Historical Society, launched recently in Baltinglass, contains two articles by Hollywood authors.  Johnny Glennon has a fascinating piece on a famous row which broke out in 1886 between two publicans in Ballymore and which soon engulfed the entire parish of Ballymore and Hollywood.  Brendan Corrigan has a very interesting article on Robert Pipho of Hollywood who was sheriff of Dublin and lived in the castle at Hollywood in the second half of the 16th century.  The Journal is now on sale in Daly’s shop Hollywood, Blessington bookshop and other local outlets.
