Hollyfort (Irish: Ráth an Chuilinn, meaning "ringfort of the holly") is a village north of County Wexford, Ireland. It lies within the townland of Mongan (Irish: an Mongán, meaning "the little swamp") in the valley of the River Bann, 5 km northwest of Gorey. Historically it was called Ráth an Chuillin, which is an anglicisation of its Irish name.[1]
