Hopper's Pub in Walsh Island is breaking out its famous and iconic Honda 50 Barstool to go from D'Island to The Island. 

The bar stool powered by a Honda 50 engine famously appeared on RTE in 1988. 

Noel Duffy invented the ultimate bar accessory, a motorised 50cc bar stool. It was initially invented for a St Patrick's Day Parade and while it should have been a drive away success, unfortunately for Noel, his invention never caught on.
