From Rose to Brussels — not your traditional political journey, but I have track record now, says Walsh

Fri, Apr 19, 2024

MEP Maria Walsh


While some might know me best as the Rose of Tralee, I now have a strong political track-record from Europe to share.

The transition from Rose of Tralee to MEP was not the most traditional route into politics, but after five years of working in the European Parliament for the West of Ireland, I have a strong track record under my belt. Since my election in 2019, I have worked on European policy across the areas of agriculture, SMEs, healthcare and equality.
