Redhills (Irish: An Cnoc Rua, meaning "the red hill"), is a village located in northern County Cavan, Ireland. It is near the N54 road and is home to Redhills GAA club, which has produced four Cavan Inter-County players.

The 1992 film, The Playboys, was filmed on location in the village, as was the 1995 film The Run of the Country. Both films were scripted by Oscar nominee and Redhills native, Shane Connaughton. [1] Connaughton's books A Border Station (1989) and The Run of the Country (1991) are also set in the village.[2][3]
