Biography

Eileen Walsh  is an Irish actress.

Born and raised in Cork, Walsh was raised in a Catholic household. Although she had an interest in theatre, she had no intention of becoming an actress, until she followed in the footsteps of her elder sister, who was also an actress, and young Eileen began to attend theatre workshops. Her first break came when, as a student, she landed a lead role in Disco Pigs, a stage play which received rave reviews. Subsequent movies have included When Brendan Met Trudy, The Magdalene Sisters, and The End.

In 2008, Walsh won an award for Best Actress at the Tribeca Film Festival for her portrayal of Breda, a lonely housewife whose willpower is put to the test in the film Eden.

Now residing in Scotland, Walsh is married to sculptor Stuart McCaffer; the couple have a child.
