Strong Representation for Galway in Europe

MEP Profile: Maria Walsh

From Shrule on the Mayo Galway border, I ask for your number one vote to continue my work as your MEP working across Midlands North West – Promoting Progressive, Positive and Inclusive Politics. 

I’m proud to say that I do politics different. There was no blueprint from the Rose of Tralee to MEP! Working with my constituents on a daily basis, my sole motivation is to improve the everyday lives of the people of the Midlands-North West. 

Through my work as your MEP, I have secured new human trafficking laws, delivered the Pay Transparency Directive, advocated mental health as an EU priority, campaigned for increased financial supports for CAP and prioritised representing the voices of my constituents. 

 My priorities for 2024 and beyond include: 

  1. Empowering Rural Development: Directing EU funds to local authorities and community groups to invigorate and sustain our rural heartlands. 
  1. Championing Equality: Ending violence against women, eradicating pink tax, tackling gender pay gaps, enhancing healthcare accessibility and safeguarding LGBTQI+ rights. 
  1. Supporting Business Growth: Backing the 120,000 entrepreneurs and SMEs with tailored supports for growth and innovation. 
  1. Prioritising Mental Health: Advocating for a comprehensive Europe-wide mental health strategy to elevate its status as a national health priority. 
  1. Strengthening Supports for Farm Families: Investing in technology, sustainability initiatives, and holistic support systems to ensure a thriving future for farming communities. 

I humbly ask for your vote in the European Elections on June 7th, so I can continue fighting for you.
