Shona asks if Charlie can sleep in her bed, and says he is afraid of the 'bad man' who appeared at Shona's bedroom window. Is Charlie really imaginary, or is he the spirit of a murdered child? Is he there to warn Shona, or to draw her into danger at the river?

Batty Ryan - 10 Steps To Success In Life and Business

Design for Life

Batty Ryan was born in Mucklish on the Louth/Meath border. He grew up on his parent’s dairy farm and ran the farm with his brother Bunty until they fell out over whose turn it was to milk the cows the evening Mucklish Football Seniors won the Gaughan Cup. Things turned sour after that, Batty left the farm and they have never spoken since despite Batty’s efforts to bring in a Buddhist intermediary. Soon after, Batty married Evelyn Dixon whose father, Dixie ran Dixon’s Bar in Yellow Furze. Batty helped run the bar when Dixie suffered a severe stroke. Batty was also a part time sales person for Dixon’s Plant Hire. This gave him valuable experience and inside knowledge in the running of 2 diverse businesses.

Batty and Evelyn had 3 children, Robbie, Niall and Ianna. It was around the time of the birth of Ianna that Batty started managing the band Zoe Ward and Mentals a pop band that took the East coast by storm during the summer of ’92 with their daring stage show and sexy songs including “Dirty Beach” and “Deep Fried (You Got Me)”. Batty was riding high but too many nights on the road took a toll on his marriage. After an unfair divorce settlement which left him penniless he resolved to make it all back. He tried his hand in any job he could get; pilot, pizza chef and team leader in a sales team but none of them gave him the satisfaction that he craved or the money or respect. However after enrolling in a life coach course he realised he had found his vocation in life. Not only could he get on the road like he had with the now defunct Mentals but he could also call on his vast knowledge in the many jobs he’s been employed in to help others be successful in their chosen ambitions. With the positive attitude he had learnt in the life coach course and through his own research he completely turned his life around and now he wants to spread the good news to you.
