The writer famously named the characters of Winnie the Pooh after his son Robin’s toys – including Tigger, Eyeore and Piglet.

The pair initially had a difficult relationship which will serve as the inspiration for the character of Christopher Robin.

The news comes after the Malahide native was confirmed for a new Netflix movie that tells the story of US satirical magazine National Lampoon.
