Jacqueline O'Connor, from Nenagh, Co Tipperary, turned to a popular song to help come up with a slogan to nab one of five Honda TRX250TMs on offer in a competition in the Irish Independent.

In addition to the machine, FRS Training provided vital certified quad bike safety training to each winner as part of the prize.

The competition received a strong response after readers were asked to collect 10 tokens and complete an eye-catching slogan or tiebreakers.

People were asked if they were chosen as the winners then what theme song or movie title would they give it.

'A Little Less Acceleration' was the winning entry from Martina Landy, in Windgap, Co Kilkenny.

Twist

Michael Kelly, from Enniscorthy, Co Wexford, put a twist on song lyrics from The Doors' 'Light My Fire' with 'Come On Baby Light My Tyres'.

Alan Rogers, from Ballymote, Co Sligo, made a pun on one of Martin Scorsese's top-rated gangster movies Goodfellas', staring Robert de Niro, as he served up 'Quadfellas'.

Winner Siobhan O'Reilly from Arklow, Co Wicklow, nodded her head to agriculture, where many use quadbikes as a easy way to check fences and animals, with her slogan 'You Can't Slurry Love' by Phil Collins'.

The five winners were presented with the Honda quad bikes worth €5,699 and also their vital safety training after their winning entries were selected from more than 9,000 countrywide.
