CHRISTMAS IN BALLYYAHOO
If there’s one thing happier than a happy Christmas, it’s a happy Irish Christmas, but the happiest Christmas of all, is the one in the magical town of Ballyyahoo!
Ballyyahoo is a tiny town, hidden away on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Everyone loves Christmas in Ballyyahoo and this one was going to be the best one ever, until two villains disguised as Santa and Rudolph showed up on Christmas Eve and stole all the presents away!
It’s up to two boys, Kevin and Gerry, to save Christmas. Usually these boys spend their time lazing around swinging on a gate and playing tricks on the people of Ballyyahoo but stealing Christmas is serious!
The two boys set off on their bikes, desperately seeking Santa. But, when they get lost in the woods near the terrible town of Ballyuseless, Kevin and Gerry begin to wish they’d stayed at home.
After a perilous journey through Banshee infested countryside they eventually catch up on Santa and Rudolph, but these two villains have no intention of wishing anyone a happy Christmas, especially not anyone from Ballyyahoo. The only thing they want to wrap up for Christmas is Kevin and Gerry!
The two boys find themselves locked in a box, on a boat, in the middle of the wild Irish Sea. There’s only one person that can help them and that’s the wonderful Witch of Ballyyahoo - but will she get there in time?
