Eileen Byrne

Currently based in London. 
International experience includes reporting/editing news in Mexico, France, Washington DC, and Tunisia.
Based in Tunisia 2011-2015, I reported regularly for The Guardian (London) and The Economist magazine, with some breaking news for France 24 TV, London's LBC radio, and Canada's CBC radio. 
I edited news from across the Americas at the Agence France-Presse bureau in Washington DC for two years until 2001 and in the 1990s worked as a reporter for The Daily Journal, Caracas, covering first politics and then the oil beat.
I have a first degree in history from Manchester University, and a postgraduate degree from Oxford University. Fluent French and Spanish, some Arabic.
