Michael Walsh (May 4, 1810 - March 17, 1859) was a United States Representative from New York.

Early life

Born in Youghal, Cork, Ireland, he completed preparatory studies, was graduated from Trinity College, Dublin and emigrated to the United States, settling in Baltimore, Maryland. He learned the lithographic printing trade, and moved to New York City.


He was a member of the New York State Assembly in 1839. In 1843 he established the Subterranean, which he stopped after two years when convicted for the publication of libel. He was elected as a member of the State assembly in 1846 and again in 1848, and was elected as a Democrat to the Thirty-third Congress, March 4, 1853 to March 3, 1855. He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1854 to the Thirty-fourth Congress, and after his term in Congress was employed as a newspaper reporter. He died in New York City in 1859; interment was in Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn.
