Hello! My name is Cormac Butler, and I am CarTrendIreland

All models are wrong but some are useful.

Welcome to Ireland's first and only used car blog driven by data! This site is a platform for me to combine my personal interest in cars with my professional expertise in data.

In my blog, you will find a range of topics related to the analytics and trends surrounding the second hand car market, as well as broader discussions on the intersection of technology and the automotive industry. From broad a broad analysis of macro trends to deep dives on specific models, I strive to provide clear, accurate, and easy-to-understand information for car owners, enthusiasts, and techies alike.

My goal is for this blog to be a great starting point for car buyers, sellers, and owners entering the market. I will also be hosting a developer log detailing valuable lessons I've learned in the CarTrendIreland site.

I hope you find my blog helpful and informative. If you have any questions or suggestions, don’t hesitate to reach out!
