The Business Post is pleased to announce the appointment of Lorcan Allen as Business Editor.
Having spent the past seven years with the Irish Farmers Journal, Allen will lead the development of business coverage at the Business Post, in both print and online.

“It’s an incredible honour for me to be joining the Business Post, which is Ireland’s leading business, economic and political newspaper and one of the most trusted media brands in this country.
“I look forward to working with the super team of journalists at the paper to help drive insightful, unique and relevant business analysis for readers of the Business Post,” Allen said.
