Megan Laura Walsh (born 12 November 1994) is a professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Women's Super League.

Following the demise of Notts County in Spring 2017, Walsh signed for Yeovil Town for the rest of the FA WSL Spring Series.[3] In July 2019, following Yeovil's relegation to the FA Women's National League South, Walsh remained in the WSL after signing for Brighton & Hove Albion.

Walsh represented Great Britain at the 2017 Summer Universiade.[4]

After representing England at youth levels between 2010 - 2020, it was announced that Megan changed international allegiances to Ireland, eligible through her Wexford-born grandfather, having failed to receive a call up for the England senior team. She was called up for Ireland's Women's World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia and Georgia. [5]
