David began his career as a journalist reporting for the Leibtrim Observer and at the age of 25 he became the editor. His next job was at the Dublin based newspaper the Irish Press, and while working there he decided to take a year out to cover cycling in Paris. He returned to his job for a short period before moving on to work the Sunday Tribune followed by the ‘Sunday Independent’ and in 1996 he joined The Sunday Times.

In 1998, David began working on the story about doping in professional cycling alongside another Sunday Times journalist called Paul Kimmage. Together they battled to expose the extent of illegal doping that was taking place within the professional cycling circuit, in particular the US postal team and its leader Lance Armstrong.

His article - Champ of Cheat - written in 2001, posed the probing question: why Lance Armstrong, a supposed clean rider would work with the controversial Italian Doctor, Michele Ferrari. Walsh has also written three books about Lance Armstrong, in which he revealed his findings and suspicions of drug use. David has also spoken out after the Lance Armstrong interview with Oprah Winfrey saying he was disappointed that Lance did not name the names of other cyclists that were involved in doping.

He is a four-time winner of the Irish Sports Writer of the Year and a four-time winner of the UK Sports Writer of the Year. David was recently judged Journalist of the Year at the British Press Awards for his work on the Lance Armstrong story.

In October 2013 it was announced that his book Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstong was to be adapted into a film, starring Chris O'Dowd as Walsh and Ben Foster as Armstrong, and directed by Stephen Frears.

David is an adept after dinner speaker, whose constant pursuit of Lance Armstrong and inability to give up on the truth is unfalteringly admirable. He tells his tale with passion, conviction and a resounding determination that the truth will always win.
