Mazda Ireland Team Up With Brendan Courtney


Mazda Ireland is delighted to announce collaboration with one of Ireland’s best-known TV/ Radio presenters and fashion designer Brendan Courtney. Brendan will be a Mazda Ireland ambassador and will have the chance to test drive various Mazda vehicles, experiencing the legendary fun to drive that they offer.  Mazda recognizes that Brendan’s stylish approach to all things design makes him the perfect collaborator.

Mazda is well known for design and has won numerous awards around the world. The concentration on Kodo design (Soul of Motion) and Crafted in Japan heritage makes Mazda vehicles stand out from the crowd. With the new flagship model, the Mazda CX-80, which will be launched later this year in Ireland, the premium approach of the brand is even more clear and visible. The connection with this talented designer makes sense more than ever.

“When we started talking with Brendan, we could immediately see that he was a perfect fit for Mazda. His understanding and approach to aesthetics, specifically design, is very similar to our Crafted in Japan legacy. Our focus on the hand-made and premium feel of our vehicles will be even more visible with the upcoming Mazda CX-80, which Brendan cannot wait to drive,” Peter Gannon, Commercial Sales Manager of Mazda Ireland said.

Brendan Courtney is a household name in Ireland, having been a TV / Radio Presenter for 25 years.  He has run his own women’s fashion label, “Lennon Courtney”, since 2013 and exports world-wide.

Brendan said of the collaboration, “The minute I turned the engine on I could feel that I was sitting in a masterpiece. I am blown away by the driving experience and fell totally in love with the stunning aesthetic and beautifully crafted design detail. I am so happy to be a part of the Mazda family.” 

John Perry, MD of Mazda Ireland, said, “We wanted Brendan to try more of our vehicles, as the Mazda range really has a bit of everything. As an introduction to the brand, the natural first choice was the Mazda MX-5. With this legendary roadster you get the ‘taste and feel’ of Mazda in the first minute of driving it.  And second obvious choice was the current flagship – the Mazda CX-60, the core of Crafted in Japan for me,” John added.
