Hi, j'ai vraiment des problèmes avec cette sorcière !
Qui peut m'aider à comprendre, surtout la fin :
"And when Doctor Folan was sent for to see her he was led astray, and it is beyond Ballylee he found himself. And surely she was taken if ever any one was."
Merci !​

    British English
    'When Dr. Folan was asked to visit her he was led astray (by someone or something unspecified), and ended up on the other side of Ballylee (presumably far from his destination.)
    'To be taken' is a metaphorical phrase meaning 'to die' - the last sentence means that, in her case, the metaphorical phrase was literally true.
