Dan O’Brien has resigned as economics editor of The Irish Times and plans to write for Independent Newspapers, among other other responsibilities.

He joined The Irish Times in June 2010 and previously was a senior economist and editor at the Economist Intelligence Unit, a unit of The Economist Newspaper Group.

O'Brien will be taking on the roles of chief economist at the Institute for International and European Affairs and senior adjunct research fellow at University College Dublin’s School of Politics and International Relations.

From December he will write regularly for Independent Newspapers, including a general column in the Sunday Independent, a weekly economics column each Friday in the Irish Independent and contributing to the newspaper as economics analyst.

O'Brien's book "Ireland, Europe and the World: Writings on a New Century" was published in October 2009.
