DOB: 14 June 1983
From: Cavan/Sandringham Dragons, Selection 49, 2001 Rookie Draft
Irish recruit who captained the Irish under 17 international rules team against Australia, and was sponsored by the Demons to complete his studies at St. Kevin's College. In his first year there he won the school Best and Fairest and was drafted by the Demons soon after.
Walsh spent two years on the rookie list before being delisted. He played two senior games for Sandringham, and was assigned number 12 but never wore it in an AFL match after suffering a wretched run with injury.
He returned to Ireland, and his old team Cavan, spending five years at home before winning the job as the Greater Western Sydney high performance coach in 2012. Served as the Giants' defensive coach from 2017.
