The Ballycastle Bats were a Quidditch team located in Northern Ireland. They were the second most successful team in the British and Irish Quidditch League, having won the title twenty-seven times nearing the end of the 20th century.

Their robes were black with scarlet bat logos. Their mascot was Barny the Fruitbat, who was also featured in Butterbeer advertisements.[2]

Finbar Quigley played for this team in the 19981999 Season.[3]



Notes and references

  1. As the team had won the Quidditch League 27 times nearing the end of the 20th century, and the maximum number of times a team had won the league in a row was five, a record held by the Tutshill Tornados, the team had to be founded at least 33 years before the year 2000 (if they won the League four times times in a row six times and three times in a row once with only one year in between each streak) in order to achieve this by the end of the 20th century.
