Welcome to the magical village of Ballyyahoo. If you’ve never heard of it before it’s not really surprising! You see Ballyyahoo is a tiny place carefully hidden in a secret location on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

WHO LIVES IN BALLYYAHOO?

The people of Ballyyahoo are called Ballyyahooians. There aren’t all that many people living here so if you come back here often you’ll soon get to know them all.

BIDDY THE CRIME-FIGHTING WITCH

For a start there’s Biddy the crime-fighting witch. Biddy seems just like any other ordinary woman. She does ordinary things like Zumba dancing and eating roasted peanuts on her way home.

But Biddy’s not ordinary at all because what the other Ballyyahooians don’t know is that Biddy is a real live witch. A witch who keeps Ballyyahoo safe by flying around the skies on her magic vacuum cleaner looking out for evil crooks and wickedness.

MAGGIE MANY CATS

Then there’s Maggie-many-cats who as you might suspect has a house full of cats. If you would like to read what happened to the three little kittens that were left alone in the woods click here.

SERGEANT SID

Sergeant Sid is the local policeman. He doesn’t have much to do because most of the time there is no crime in Ballyyahoo. That means Sid gets very, very bored and when Sid gets bored he makes up new laws as he goes along.

Some of those laws are completely bonkers like wearing odd socks on a Tuesday, or eating crisps on a Wednesday. You can read about Sergeant Sid here.

What Sergeant Sid doesn’t know is that there’s a reason why there’s no crime in Ballyyahoo and that’s all because of Biddy, the crime-fighting witch. In fact very few people know about The Witch of Ballyyahoo, but one person who suspects the truth is Lucy.

WITCH-WATCH

Lucy  is a young girl who writes her own blogs. Lucy wants to be a detective when she grows up, so when she heard a rumour about a witch, she decided she’d start looking for the truth.  You can read about Lucy’s search for the Witch of Ballyyahoo here on Witch-Watch.

NATURE AND WILDLIFE

Lucy also loves nature and so she’s always out and about exploring the fields, woodlands and seaside.  She writes another blog about this called: nature in Ballyyahoo.

Best wishes,
