Agios Ermolaos (Greek: Άγιος Ερμόλαος, Turkish: Şirinevler) is a village in Cyprus, 5 km east of Kontemenos. It is under the de facto control of Northern Cyprus.

All of the Agios Ermolaos Greek Cypriots fled before the Turkish army and were displaced as a consequence of the Turkish Invasion of Cyprus in 1974.[2] Formerly enclaved, displaced Turkish Cypriots from the south of the island and Turks from mainland Turkey subsequently moved to this village and it was named Şirinevler in Turkish in 1975.
