Former Rose of Tralee, Maria Walsh Spills The Beans On Split With Girlfriend

The out and proud 2014 Rose of Tralee winner, Maria Walsh has revealed that she’s newly single, but not quite yet ready to mingle.


“While the romantic part of the friendship is over, we’re still very much friends.”

Former Rose of Tralee winner, Maria Walsh has spoken about her split with girlfriend, TV producer Shauna Keogh.

Maria spoke to the Irish Mirror about her newfound singledom, but said she and Keogh will remain friends and work colleagues.

“We are both single but we are entwined with projects with work so while the romantic part of the friendship is over, we’re still very much friends,” she said.

The pair will continue to work together on pet TV projects, one of which is a documentary about Mayo footballer Cora Staunton.

“Myself and Shauna have a documentary coming out called Cora Staunton The Greatest and it goes out in TG4 some time mid September,” Maria says.

“It’s all about her journey to Australia to play with The Sydney Giants. It’s all about female empowerment. Myself and Shauna are big female supporters and love sport so this is a natural fit.”

It could have been growing work commitments that lead to the split up, given that last year Walsh complained that the two rarely got time together. “I never get to see her,” Walsh told the Irish Independent. “With work [for Shauna] it never rains but it pours. She’s blowing up.”

Maria may be one of Ireland’s most eligible single lesbians, but she claims she’s not quite ready to get back in the dating game. “Not a hope, would you give me a second, but I’m as single as they come.”
