Eileen Byrne

Reporting mainly in English, with fluent Spanish and French.
I have previously worked as a journalist in Mexico, France, Washington DC, Morocco, Tunisia, and Qatar. 
I was a reporter on the Caracas newspaper The Daily Journal for one year, back in the 1990s. 
In 2015-2016 I edited TV news scripts at Al Jazeera English in Qatar. Based in Tunisia 2011-2015, I reported regularly for The Guardian (London) and The Economist magazine, and occasionally 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.
I have a first degree in history from Manchester University, England, and a postgraduate degree from Oxford University.
