Europa United’s Editor-in-Chief Ken Sweeney chats with Maria Walsh MEP who is an Irish politician and a member of the European Parliament (MEP) from Ireland for the Midlands–North-West constituency since July 2019. She is a member of Fine Gael, part of the European People’s Party. Outside of politics, she is known for winning the 2014 Rose of Tralee pageant.
Maria talks about her decision to run as an MEP, women in politics, climate issues and her experiences so far as a representative in the European Parliament.

The programme is administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. This year, €100,000 has been provided for Communicating Europe Initiative funded projects.
