Holly - Anglicised Surnames in Ireland

Padraig Mac Giolla-Domhnaigh
1923

Holly—This name in South-Eastern Ulster is the anglicised form of McQuillan, the County Louth sept, from Cuileann, holly, and I believe Hollywood comes from the same name, though said to come from O'Cuileanain. Hollywood is found in Armagh.
