MOTORING MEDIA ASSOCIATION OF IRELAND
The Motoring Media Association of Ireland (MMAI) is a professional membership organisation, bringing together many of Ireland’s leading motoring journalists across print, broadcast, and online media. Across local, regional and national media – and the world wide web – our members review new cars and commercial vehicles, and report on motoring matters relevant to Irish consumers. MMAI members vote annually for Irish Car of the Year and Irish Van of the Year, Ireland’s most prestigious and widely recognised motoring accolades for over 40 years.
The MMAI’s mission is to act as a voice for professional motoring journalists in Ireland. We promote independent, accurate reporting and the highest standards in motoring journalism. Our members are committed to working in the interests of consumers in Ireland, providing expert advice on buying a car or commercial vehicle, and unrivalled insight on motoring matters.
