Piggley Winks, also known as Grandpa Piggley, is the son of Padrig and Elly Winks, the older brother of Molly, the father of Ciara, the grandfather of Meg, Sean and Seamus and is the main character in Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks. He is voiced by Maile Flanagan as a child and Peadar Lamb as an adult.
This spirited nine-year-old is our hero and the unofficial leader of the youngsters in and around the village of Tara. He's spunky, creative, imaginative rascal with a streak of mischief in his veins and a definite gift of the gab. His favourite activity is going on adventures (don't ask him to sit down) with his two best friends Ferny and Dannan.
If there's a simple straightforward way of doing something it's of no interest to Piggley!. He'd rather uncover the mysteries of everyday life, explore the other reaches of imagination and cook up exciting new schemes.
