A former art teacher, Walsh was elected to Dáil Éireann for Dublin South–West during the swing to Labour at the 1992 general election, after an unsuccessful attempt at the 1987 general election. Like some Labour Party TDs elected in 1992, he lost his seat at the 1997 general election. His seat was taken by Conor Lenihan of Fianna Fáil. Walsh unsuccessfully contested the Seanad Éireann election in the same year. He also failed to win a seat at the 2002 general election.
