On the Access to Insight website, under the brief bio for Maurice Walshe, there is this sentence:
"A few months before he died he completed a Buddhist Pali dictionary."
Was this dictionary ever published? Has anyone seen it? If so, is it any good?

This is news to me. I doubt it's been published as I would almost certainly have heard about it.
...and this thought arose in the mind of the Blessed One:

It were endless to dispute upon everything that is disputable.

I saw this dictionary last autumn in the Amaravati Buddhist Monastery's library.
It was just a manuscript, typewritten A4 pages, and not very voluminous. 30-40 pages if I remember well...

The Pali Text Society's dictionary is available online.
