Courts Data Solutions
Leadership Team

Enda Leahy CEO

An award–winning journalist and national newspaper editor in the UK and Ireland, Enda started as a foreign affairs reporter at the Sunday Times in London, later moving to legal and security correspondent at the Sunday Times, and eventually becoming Deputy Editor of the Irish Mail on Sunday, managing a team of 100 staff, all editorial and investigations, as well as working on commercial and digital strategy. He left the news media to set up Courtsdesk after becoming frustrated at how the courts, while ‘public’ in theory, are in fact almost impossible to research. Courts Data Solutions is, quite literally, the solution!
