Peter O’Mahony teams up with Honda Ireland

Peter O’Mahony is one of Ireland’s leading professional rugby players, representing  Munster and Ireland. Honda Ireland are delighted to announce we have teamed up with Peter for his other passion – his garden!


Peter is currently in Japan ahead of the World Cup, preparing for Ireland’s first game against Scotland this Sunday 22nd September at 08.45am, Peter is an integral part of the Irish side. However when he’s home in Cork he loves nothing better than spending time in his beautiful garden, what you’d call a self confessed garden enthusiast!

As Peter has become the brand new Honda Brand Ambassador, he will be using some of our most popular lawn machinery, including the Honda HRM3000 Miimo, our robotic lawnmower. Use of this product will ensure his grass is kept an optimum height and condition when he is away from home. Safe for children and pets, this robotic lawnmower is the perfect model for a busy young family, such as Peters.

To tend to the bushes and other growth Peter will be using the Honda UMK425ELE, straight shaft brushcutter. Robust and durable this tool will help Peter tame the areas of the garden where needed.

You can keep up to date on how Peter finds the products through his social media channels – Instagram and Twitter. 

To celebrate this very special partnership you can win a limited edition World Cup Jersey and rugby ball signed by the man himself over on the Honda Ireland Facebook page. Enter before September 27th to win.

Win the ultimate Lawn and Garden Package worth over €1000!

We recently sat down with our Honda Brand Ambassador Sean O’Brien for a catch up on what has guided him through life, his advice for the younger generations and what keeps him grounded.

Captured in the video was not only ourselves and Sean but also the star of the show – Sean’s very cute dog!

The very relaxed pup was happy chilling with Sean while we chatted, he loved being up on Sean’s Honda TRX500FA6 quad and was an all round trooper, so when we watched the video back it got us thinking ‘what’s the dog thinking!’

We thought we’d let you guys come up with the best caption for what the dog is thinking in this particular clip:

What does the Honda Versatool™ do for your garden?

Are you a garden lover and want to get the best from your garden?

Look no further than the Honda Versatool™. The Versatool™ is designed to take on a huge range of garden tasks. With eight push-and-click attachment options and a 4-stroke engine at its heart, it’s the ultimate power tool for gardening perfection.

But how does it work? 

Well all you need to do is combine your desired powerhead engine with the attachments you need to complete the jobs you need done in your garden.

First you will need to choose your power – we’ve got two separate engine sizes in the powerheads – the 425 has a 25cc engine, and the 435 has a 35cc engine.

Both come with a harness – the 425 has a single strap, while the 435 has a double strap to support the bigger engine.


Then come the attachments, you need to decide what job you need doing and we will have something to suit it:

Hedge Trimmer

Whether you’re shaping small bushes or taming tall hedges, the hedgetrimmer attachment comes in a size right for the job – either 50cm or a longer, 54cm version. Both sizes have an adjustable joint that pivots both left and right, to ensure comfort and manoeuvrability.


The semi-automatic line trimmer head feeds the nylon thread, simply by tapping it on the ground. Five inches in diameter, the head will hold over 56% more line than a traditional one, too. The small cutter that snips the line is made of metal – not plastic like other manufacturers’ products. That means it can be sharpened – a must for professional use.


For both the domestic and commercial gardener, the Versatool pruner attachment maintains constant torque to help you get through the toughest of branches. It can get to high places with its extended shaft, and can also be used with the extension pole to reach even greater heights.


Extremely lightweight and easy to use, the blower attachment keeps your lawn, driveway and garden paths free of leaves and garden rubbish – giving your garden the look of a freshly hoovered carpet.


Creating a neat finish to your lawn is easy with our edger attachment – it creates a tidy and attractive garden edge around flowerbeds, pathways and patios for perfect-looking grass.


Perfect for maintaining garden beds and vegetable patches, the durable cultivator attachment provides high torque for tackling compact soil. Its 20cm working width gives you accuracy in moving around beds, and makes tilling and aerating your soil easy.

Once you’ve picked your attachments you’re good to go tackle the garden with your Honda.

You can purchase any Honda Versatool kit in your local Honda Lawn and Garden Dealership.
