Griffith Graduate Maria Walsh Returns

a degree from Griffith College can open many doors

Griffith College welcomed back journalism alumna and 2014 Rose of Tralee winner, Maria Walsh, for a number of talks and media workshops on the Dublin campus earlier this week.

Maria is a 2009 graduate of the Journalism and Media faculty having studied the three-year BA (Hons) in Journalism and Visual Media undergraduate course. She was crowned the 56th Rose of Tralee in August 2014. Originally from Boston Massachusetts, she moved to Shrule in Co. Mayo with her family 20 years ago.

Studying at Griffith College has opened so many doors for me, both personally and professionally. I really enjoyed my time here and was delighted to be able to take the time to visit and see so many new and familiar faces on campus today. It is great to come back and share my experiences with the next generation of up and coming media talent.
