Founder of Dad.ie
Dad.ie provides information on Pregnancy, Fatherhood, Money & Legal issues, and Health & Lifestyle matters including Fitness, Sport, Motoring, Travel, Entertainment, Grooming, Gadgets (featured on the site as dadgets!) and Product Reviews (featured as dadgear!) – Exclusively for Dads & Dads-to-be.
Dad.ie is presented online in the style of a modern men’s magazine with articles updated regularly, and with all previous articles available through the site’s archive and search facility. Visitors of the site can subscribe to newsletters, take part in online polls, and participate in the forum where dads & dads-to-be can discuss everything from becoming a new dad to the everyday challenges faced in fatherhood.
The Dad behind Dad.ie
David Caren is the founder of dad.ie. Previously a music manager, David now holds down the most rewarding and challenging (yet quieter!) title of the

We are delighted to have onboard a host of writers whose contribution is based not only on their professional experience but also on their practical experience as dads & dads-to-be. This includes John Lowe, ‘The Money Doctor’, widely known for his bestselling books on personal finance.
