The sense of humour of the Hollywood community!


In Hollywood, co. Wicklow, Ireland, there's a small Church of Ireland church that was built in the 17th century.
This isn't, though, the main item of interest in this area. In the graveyard around the old church there are five wonderful cross slabs, probably erected in the same period of the church.
They are spread all over the graveyard and finding them all is like a treasure hunt. Their heights range from 50 centimetres to 1.27 metres. One slab carries the carving of a Latin cross, the other slabs carries Maltese crosses, both incised or in bas-relief.
I think that they might be worth a visit.
