The Allingham Festival Committee are delighted to announce that Valerie Cox will deliver the 2016 Allingham Lecture. Valerie is well-known to radio listeners around the country as an investigative reporter on prime time RTÉ shows such as Morning Ireland, the Today with Seán O'Rourke Show and the Pat Kenny Show. Valerie recently retired from RTÉ after twenty years with the broadcaster, although it is highly likely that she will continue to contribute and produce programmes on a freelance basis. We are delighted that she has agreed to deliver this year's Allingham lecture. The subject and further details of the lecture will be announced later in the year.
